The library contains, among a large collection of material about Torelli's Teatro della Fortuna, a number of unbound drawings of Bibiena settings. The drawings exist in two sets, a large scale set on thick drawing paper and a small scale set on tracing paper. All of settings are illustrated in Il Palazzo del Teatro: Storia e immagini by Franco Battistelli; three are included in Per Bjurstrom's Giacomo Torelli and Baroque Stage Design.

Two drawings at the library illustrate the continental wing and border changing mechanisms.
