This chapter examines furniture ownership of people in seventeenth-century Rome. The analysis of Roman inventories reveals that Romans had a name or designation for every room in the house and that the furnishings of one room were clearly distinguished from those in another even during the first decades of the seventeenth century. It also discusses the valuation of furniture and the shift in taste in domestic spaces during the eighteenth century.

Keywords:   furniture ownership, rome, furnishings, room, valuation, domestic spaces
