A historical residence in the centre of Volterra
Among the rooms of the Palazzo that may be visited are the ornate period bedroom known as Alcova used by members of the Austrian Imperial family, including the Tuscan Grand Duke, Leopold II. Also, the frescoed Sala Impero, with its gilt and mirrors, the Studiolo that houses some of the family’s antique books, the Salotto Verde with its view of the roof garden and, then the Sala da Pranzo and Studio in which are found mementos of the inventor George Westinghouse, great grandfather of the present owner.
The visit to Palazzo Cangini Westinghouse is made memorable by a pervading sense of continuity between a distant past and contemporary daily life.
