The elite "Plumâs" battalion, arrived from Udin, was divided in smaller groups and located in the palaces around the plaza, ready to neutralize any danger, while officials of the Timâf division in full dress uniform ceremonially guarded the inside of the town hall. On the first floor of the town hall, the city council hall was refurnished to accommodate the four leaders and their entourage, a large squared hardwood table with floral carvings on the legs was put in the centre with five chairs on each side, with the central one with the name of the guest and a small flag. The room had frescoed walls, dark parquet and a wooden coffer ceiling from which a large chandelier hung, although the light was mainly coming from the large windows on one side of the room and from a few wall lights pointing at the frescoes. Under the town hall portico, Prime Minister Jusèp Bardassin was surrounded by civil servants, translators and police officials coordinating the last details before the arrival of the first guest.
