Inside the Casa Barnekow, which is unfortunately not open to the public, there are frescoes painted by the man himself.

There are also several inscriptions in Latin, in (clumsy) Italian and in Swedish.

Before he bought it it was called the Casa Gigli and Dante Alighieri himself is supposed to have slept there when he visited Anagni.
