The ceiling of the main floor was probably frescoed by Rotari, and the original terrazzo tile floors are intact in almost all the rooms. In the main hall, two large wall paintings depict "The Sacrifice of Iphigenia" by Pietro Rotari and "Achilles dragging Hector's body" by Carlo Salis, framed by painted architectural squares.
