*Rococo Revisited
Schloss Eggenberg,  Planetary RoomBuilt post-1625 by north Italian architect and artist Pietro de Pomis as a residence for imperial governor Hans Ulrich von Eggenberg (1568-1634), Eggenberg Palace (Graz, Austria) was intended as a political statement. The house was designed as a huge allegory, a symbolic representation of the universe, where the erudite client set out his notion of an ideal world in an age of chaos and disintegration. 
Crucial for the status of Schloss Eggenberg as a large-scale work of art is a series of 24 state rooms centered on the large Planetary Room. The interiors are Baroque and Rococo, largely unchanged since the 18th century. The most notable feature is a series of over 500 17th-century ceiling paintings, forming a complex pictorial synthesis, eloquent of the early Baroque view of the world. 
St. Emmeram’s Abbey , now known as Schloss Thurn und Taxis  in Regensburg in Bavaria :  an era of great festivities springs to life upon entering the ballroom, or “Baroque Room”. Max Schultze, the princely architect, joined the Rococo design of the Frankfurt palace with the Neo-Rococo to create a  two-storied room with lavish formal architecture.
