The Fondation Etrillard financed the renovation of the Aurora Room of Venice’s Royal Palace. The Foundation contributes to the preservation of this heritage treasure, allowing the public to rediscover the original rich decoration by Giovanni Rossi.
Designed between 1853 and 1857 for the apartment of Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg, the Aurora Room in the Royal Palace of Venice has been refurbished many times over the years. The original chromatic shades of the decoration had suffered, and some of the ornamental work was darkened by dust and several coats of paint. Renovation work funded by the Fondation Etrillard has restored the gilding, paintings, doors and windows to their original splendour, which can now be appreciated by the public again.
