Il privè del bar viene riprodotto nella versione ***vicentina speculare***.
This is a description of an art installation that includes the reproduction (full-size replica) of a section of a private room in a Paris bar. The description is part of a video tour for visitors to the gallery. Any ideas?
Perhaps an archaic architectural term, maybe?

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  philgoddard: I'm guessing the one in Vicenza is a mirror image (does that mean reversed?) of the one in Paris. But why not share your references?

  -> it's an installation; both links refer to XYZ (see asker's entry in discussion)

neutral  Lara Barnett: Even if this is factually correct would need to be re-worded because before seeing all Disc comments, I automatically envisioned a mirror there. "mirror each other" is a bit vague (here) & if they are "mirror images" this is the wrong way to explain it.
