Drawings on the wall in the hall
Drawing on the wall created by Amleto Sartori in the area of the main entrance of Hotel Helvetia. The brush painting (single stroke) on a white background represents an outdoor scene with a 18th-century Venice in the background, with characters from the Commedia dell’Arte in costume.
The wall painting was not finished by the artist, who was gravely ill at the time. After his passing, on February 18, 1962, his son and disciple, Donato Sartori, carried out and defined the work.
A series of bas-reliefs in the hall
A series of bas-relief tiles (a flat or low relief style popular with Donatello) that represent the four seasons, inserted in the surrounding wall next to the main entrance. The entire cycle was cast in bronze using the lost wax technique and patinated with verdigris by the Brustolin artistic foundry in Verona in 1960.
Ceramic panels in the reception
Two ceramic panels inserted on opposite sides of the main entrance to the reception of Hotel Helvetia: probably, based on the sketch by the Master Amleto Sartori, the bas-reliefs in ceramicized terracotta with genre- figures, set in Old Padua, were made by the sculptor’s students after his death.
In fact, these bas-reliefs are not listed in the sculptor’s general work.
Decorative panel in the dining room
The decorative panel on the upper wall of the dining room at the Hotel Helvetia was painted with a script liner brush, single stroke in white on the Pompeiian red wood support. It is a long succession of characters from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte in costume.
