The Borghese Gallery was originally the home of a noble Roman family of the seventeenth century, the Borghese family, a family of popes, cardinals, and great personalities of culture and politics of the time. Today the Gallery, which is a masterpiece of art in itself, houses one of the most prestigious private art collections in the world and is one of the most visited museums in all of Italy. In our visit, we will go through all 20 frescoed rooms of the villa that were made even richer by the passion and intuition of the illustrious owner of the house, Cardinal Scipione Borghese. We will observe ancient sculptures and mosaics dialoguing with works ranging from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century: the museum collects the largest number of works by Bernini and Caravaggio, many of which were commissioned by Scipione Borghese for his own collection. We will also find paintings by Raphael, Titian, and one of the most famous sculptural masterpieces by Canova. After almost four centuries, the Borghese Gallery still represents the glory of Rome. Our visit will be an immersive experience in art difficult to forget for those who have eyes to look and a heart to wonder...
