In a room on the villa's top floor, the ceiling was originally painted with scenes inspired by those found on ancient Attic vases. Today, those ceiling paintings contrast with Paolini's refined installation.
Working directly on the white walls the artist traced charcoal lines that impart a sense of depth on the opposite walls, as well as suggest the presence of two laurel-crowned muses. Several natural leaves are included among those made by the artist that fall, here and there, onto the wall, on which each figure resides. One of the figures is turned toward the wall, while the other toward the visitor.
