The hotel is framed by a rare garden whose spaces and comfort have been enhanced by a skillful restoration. Designed by Giuseppe Sardi (b. S. Angelo di Vado Pesaro 1680 d. Rome 1753) and made of Carrara marble, it represents the triumph of the Virgin-Mother, whose statue dominates the centre. Six pairs of corinthian colums stand over a tall, solid pedestal. The niches set between them contain statues of Saints Sebastian, Mary Magdalen, Margaret and John the Baptist. In the centre is a large imposing portal. These columns support and ornate entablature, which carries a further four pairs of composite colums, the statue of the Madonna is in the middle, flaked by St. Jerome, Faith, Hope (badly damaged after a fall) and St. Bartholoew. The faade is surmounted by a pediment, bearing the coat of arms of the Counts Cavazza, patrons of the Curch. On the pediment there is a statue of Christ triumphant, with Adam and Cain on his right and Abel and Eve on his left. The faade is the work of various artists, such as Clemente Molli ( b. Bologna 17th century), Francesco Penso, called Cabianca (b. Venice 1665 d. 1737) and G. Bonazza ( b. Padua 1650 d. 1736). It has been rather badly damaged, unfortunatly, by generations of pigeons. ##Restaurant The breakfast buffet is served from 7.30 a.m. until 11 a.m. in the breakfast room. During the summertime, breakfast is served in the garden.
