Description

The magnificent small palace, in which the Borghese Gallery is housed, was built in the early 17th century as a private residence and public representation of the Borghese family. From the beginning it housed the collection of Cardinal Scipio (1579-1633), nephew of Pope Paul the Fifth Borghese. In 1902 the Italian state acquired the rest of the collection and the palace.

Currently the collection consists of sculptures, bas-reliefs, and ancient mosaics, sixteenth-seventeenth century paintings, and sculptures. They include masterpieces by Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini, Perugino, Pinturicchio, Veronese, Raphael (Deposition), Domenichino (Diana's hunt), Titian (Sacred and profane love, Venus blindfolding Love), Correggio (Danae), Caravaggio (Youth with a fruit basket, the Madonna of the footmen, David with Goliath's head), Rubens (Pietà) and sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Apollo and Daphne, the Rape of Proserpina, David) and Canova (Paolina Borghese). Let me join you and tell you the history between these works!
