summary Creation of a geomerical illusion in a staircase will be discussed. This will be done by the classical approach to geometry, by selecting the "punto stabile" point and a 3D structure. This structure, consisting of simple elements, will be projected from observer's eye over punto stabile onto two vertical walls. As observer walks up the stairs, the percepted illusion will change its shape. The goal of this paper is to show how easy such illusions - once popular in the baroque period - can be created, and how creation of such illusions support further developement of spatial imagination. It is important to note, author of the illusion has full control over how such fictive architecture will be seen by an observer. That means, the author will determine all aspects of interior's perception - a point very important when it comes to the relationship between a person and space.
