Wednesday, July 4th  


from 11 am to 1 pm
The Galleria Borghese’s collection, which was called the most beautiful collection in the world, is still housed in the place that was planned and created for it, in a kind of dream of a museum ante litteram. The collection was assembled beginning in1607 by Cardinal Scipione Caffarelli Borghese (1577-1633) and consisted of paintings by Caravaggio, Titian, and Raphael, while the collection of ancient sculptures – another fundamental element capable of conferring an aura of ideal universality on art collections – was constantly expanding. The magnificence of the archaeological marbles was rivaled by the extraordinary novelty of the “modern” statuary, which was in constant competition with the classical models. From 1615 to 1623 the young Gian Lorenzo Bernini executed for the cardinal his famous sculptural groups, which are still housed in the Galleria Borghese: the Aeneas and Anchises, the Rape of Proserpina, the David, and the Apollo and Daphne. Placed in the middle of every room, they link the entire decorative theme to their iconographic nucleus of the sculptural group and have never been moved.

English speaking guide – meeting at 10.15 a.m. at the Galleria Borghese entrance –  16.50 €/person
