At the beginning of the Corridor on the first floor there is console with a large pier glass, decorated with inlays, lacquered and gilded, made in the full rococco style by Piedmontese workman. In the centre of the glass is a medallion with a portrait of Vittorio Emanuele I of Savoy. This piece of furniture was bought by the artist, together with four doors with with lintels and the door giving access to the second landing, at an auction at the Royal Palace in Turin.
