Palazzo Barberini – Spy’s room

On the first floor of Palazzo Barberini you can see a majestic fresco by Pietro da Cortona. The lion has a "real" eye: thanks to this rift, you can see through the wall and look at the other side. It was used to have a look without being seen to discover unfaithful servants or conspirators.
