The tea room

On the sides of the hanging garden, there are tea rooms characterized by a particular decoration with "girali tendrils" in shades of white and blue. This decoration imitates the motifs used in the Baroque era to decorate the porcelain and it creates a suggestive recall of the teacups used by guests. The designs follow the style of the French decorator Bérain, moreover, in the first half of the eighteenth century, this type of decoration was reused in the Savoy court, by the Turin goldsmith Juste-Aurèle Meissonnier.
