In this room is one of the principal treasures of the house. It is a gilded sedan chair made for Frà Victor Nicolas de Vachon Belmont a French Knight of Malta. He became Captain General of the Galleys from October 13th 1764 to January 9th 1766. You can see his coat of arms on the front door of the vehicle.
The bed was Orsola de Piro d'Amico's matrimonial bed. She married in 1867 and produced nine children: seven boys and two girls. All survived. Two became priests and one may well become a saint.
There is an 18th Century shaving bowl and the chamber pot is Venetian blown glass and is also over two hundred years old.
The Pre-Raphaelite picture is of the Roman martyr St Rufina. It was painted by the famous Maltese artist Giuseppe Calí (1846-1930), Marquis de Piro's great-grandfather. He decorated many churches including the interior of the rotunda at Mosta, the Church of St Francis in Valletta and the Dominican Church around the corner from this house. The other pictures are of the Bambino of Aracœli covered in jewellery, and the large Madonna and Child is from the studio of Francesco de Mura (1696-1782) of Naples.
