The room is dedicated to a painter from Verona, Pino Casarini: recent renovations have brought to light some magnificent frescoes made by the last century’s master. His works enrich the meeting room with circus allegories which give priceless added value to the hall: on large parts of the walls we can see scenes full of life, alternating with the walls lagging behind, where the pending marquee represents circus caravans. Acrobats, tightrope walkers, jugglers, contortionists, clowns, dancers and lion tamers, as well as horses, dogs, monkeys, a bear, an elephant, a giraffe and a camel: these are the protagonists of this whirlwind of colours and joy.
Pino Casarini was born in Verona in 1897, participated in Venice Biennale several times and earned many prizes and awards, including the painting award by the Academy of Italy. When he returned to his home town in 1959, Enrico Wallner, who was the owner of the hotel at that particular time, wanted to turn the palazzo into a luxury hotel, taking it back to the glory of the past, when personalities such as Goethe and Mozart had been between the prestigious clientele. By that time Casarini was already quite famous. After the war the eclectic artist distinguished himself as a painter, fresco artist, vetratista and sculptor for churches and public buildings. His skillful hands gave birth to the set designs of the opera seasons on Arena, the cradle of Italian Opera and international music. Here is an enlightening"detail", which explains the particular structure of work created at Due Torri Hotel: the walls’ decoration is inspired by spectacular panels of a re-found theatrical performance.
The performance was invisible and hidden for decades, until the recent restoration work carried out by the Duetorrihotels Group, which involved the facades removal, brought it back to the former splendor to the city of Verona and to the world.
