stables

The antique horse stables have undergone important restooration work involving the rotting wooden beams supporting the floor of the haystack overhead and the crumbling walls. The stables had been converted to storage space 100 years ago and the marble columns marking the horse stalls had been removed.

They have been retrieved, identified and placed again in their original position thanks to the marks in the stone and clay floor. The resulting reconstricted space is quite intriguing, witness of the care affforded to horse and of thei role as a status symbol and as a means for transportetion in not so distant time.
