... that I can't remember and an oriental fan collection. A lady we believe to be the daughter of the current Viti owners tells us about the lamp. In another room the guy who sold us the tickets comes in and tells us about a Popes secret guard uniform on display and then disappears behind a secret door in the wall. Another Viti has been met.
