One of the artistic periods, more coy, is undoubtedly that of Art Nouveau. In Rome, in the early ’20s, exploded the Art Nouveau, and began to appear beautiful stained windows glass, painted on fire!
Eclectic art, at the beginning, offered mainly medieval figures, to meet the demands of the bourgeoisie. But soon after, appeared geometric shapes and natural themes. The windows became important decorative element of the domestic spaces.
You may see an example of the Art of glass is the ” CASINA DELLE CIVETTE ” ( “House of the Owls” of the noble Torlonia family) that currently has become the Museum of Liberty Stained Glass.
Here you can even see the evolution of the artistic technique, admiring the light that illuminates swans, peacocks, owls and migratory birds, butterflies and roses… that come to life from those wonderful windows.
In addition, the park where the CASINA DELLE CIVETTE is , is really nice….
