A bit of history
The Borghese Gallery ( Galleria Borghese ) is located in the beautiful gardens of Villa Borghese and is one of the most prestigious art museums in the world. The gallery is recognized throughout Europe and inside it is exposed much of the collection of Cardinal Scipione Borghese started between 1576 and 1633.
This magnificent collection is on two floors and 20 decorated rooms. Upstairs there is a large art gallery full of famous works, including the Victorian Venus of 1805, internationally known as the Paulina Bonaparte, is the most famous piece of the museum and practically its symbol. The ground floor is dedicated to classical sculpture and antiques, but we can not fail to appreciate its mosaics and the frescoes that decorate the walls and ceilings that have been preserved over the years.
The museum houses an important collection of works by Bernini, Tiziano, Raffaello, Caravaggio, Rubens, Botticelli and Canova. The sculptures by Bernini and Canova that we can see in the museum give each room a touch of class and distinction.
The Borghese Gallery of Rome is one of the most fascinating museums in Italy. It is located in an ancient 17th century building and is ideal for displaying famous masterpieces in the world. The original collection has been accumulated by Cardinal Borghese, endowed with great artistic taste and extraordinary intuition. He was able to create a beautiful collection dedicated to the expressions of ancient, renaissance and contemporary art.
One of the qualities of the Galleria Borghese is its compact and accessible character, which allows visitors to easily turn it around in about two hours.
