The Members' Consultation Room
On days when parliamentary sittings are in progress citizens may, on appointment, meet “their“ Members in this room and talk to them about their problems. The room is also used for a number of other purposes such as book presentations, award ceremonies and the like.
In the middle of the longitudinal wall on the right side of the Peristyle impressive doors open onto the former anteroom of the House of Deputies. The doors are made of walnut wood with mahogany, rosewood and maple inlays, the door handles shaped like a snake. The walls are covered by scagliola panels. Scagliola is a special fresco technique already used in Pompeii and rediscovered in Italy in the 18th century to produce imitation marble. Nowadays the room is used by Members of Parliament to meet with citizens.
