In his Appartamento dello Specchio (Mirror Apartment) Duke Alfonso II requested that fresco cycle reflect a Bacchanalia. Painted in oils these frescoes are unusual because of that and are delicate.

Trionfo di Arianna (Ariadne’s Triumph) is thought to be the work of Ludovico Settevecchi; Vendemmia (Wine Harvest) and Trionfo di Bacco (The Triumph of Bacchus) are attributed to the Filippi family studio.
