Photographer's Note

Narciso's dressing room - The Nymph in the presence of Jupiter - Palazzo Cesi - Acquasparta (TR)

The small dressing room, covered by a pavilion vault, shows a real painted heraldic genealogy of the Cesi, with the Cesi-Salviati party coat of arms in the center (referable to the union between Federico Cesi and Isabella Salviati), circumscribed by a frame at the inside of which the Cesi mountains alternate with golden crowns and from which as many frames decorated with dogwood and mountains branch off. On the sides of the power plant, on the left, the coats of arms of the Linceo ancestors' families, i.e. the Caetani dell'Aquila, the Orsini and the Anguillara, can be recognized, while on the right those of his wife Isabella Salviati, with the Bandini, Strozzi and Salviati families, all interspersed by female figures or putti who support the elements that make up the coat of arms itself. On the short sides of the vault, a lion is painted with the Cesian motto OMNIBIS IDEM above the lynx, emblem of the Academy founded by Frederick, on the opposite side, an eagle with a ring and the motto IN TENEBRIS FULGET, and under the brand of the Scotto, however, without the S.O.S.
Above the window Narcissus is depicted chasing deer, here he meets Echo, the Nymph who cannot speak first, but repeats the sounds. In the other panels we see The Nymph in the presence of Jupiter, Echo wanders in the woods, rejected by Narcissus, The condemnation of Narcissus and The Death of Narcissus.
