The suite on the main floor (piano nobile), at the very core of Palazzo Luce is also the most ancient of its parts and takes its name from Maria dEnghien, countess of Lecce and Queen of Naples who also lived in these very rooms. Like a 14th-century chest holding family heirloom, the spaces reveal treasurable art and design pieces: the original furnishings by Gio Ponti, the brgeres seating by Pier Giulio Magistretti, the large lamp by Hans-Agne Jackobsson, walls vested in hand-painted striped fabric, the rare compressed paper work by Ettore Spalletti from 1976 and not least the enigmatic ceiling fresco above the bed, created by artist David Tremlett. A spiral that draws the flow of time – an encounter between past and future. A characteristic Baroque balcony facing the external onto Via del Palazzo dei Conti di Lecce, on the main elevation of the Palazzo Luce.
