The large murals on the stairs were painted by Maltese artist Ramiro Calì (1884-1947). They represent 'Electricity' (observe the wires and electric bulb) and 'Agriculture'. The beautiful sister of the artist, Margaret was the lady of the house after 1918 when she married Anthony Cassar Torreggiani O.B.E. miller, banker and entrepreneur. The portrait of the lady in a straw hat is of Marchioness de Piro by Mary de Piro. The watercolour is Louisa daughter of the house wearing the traditional faldetta. The engraving which includes a Maltese dog is by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-1873).
