The article analyses the frescos painted in the main floor of the sixteenth-century palazzo Averoldi in Brescia, transformed in one of the most significant Neoclassical project in the city. The palace was the subject of a series of architectural and decorative interventions, on order of Chizzola family, who inherited it from Vincenzo Averoldi. Thanks to account books of the end of eighteenth-century and inventories of the following century, preserved in public and private archives in Brescia, it was possible to confirm the authorship of many frescos and to suggest new attributions. From 1788 to 1791, Saverio Gandini, Francesco Tellaroli and Giuseppe Teosa worked together to restoration some rooms in the main block, employing a renovated Neoclassical style. Few years later, Giuseppe Manfredini was appointed to paint the rooms in the western wing, showing a large influence of Carracci’s models. In the end, Manfredini and Teosa completed the main block decorating the great hall and the near rooms, included the unusual Chinese Room.
