Set in an eighteenth-century convent, this gallery has many fine examples of neoclassical and Romantic paintings and sculptures. Students can follow the dramatic change from the glories of the Renaissance and ancient Rome to more recent pieces of work by artists including Balla, Boccioni, Giorgio de Chirico, Fattori, Modigliani and Morandi.
Michaelangelo’s 16th-century ceiling fresco here is considered his best work and perhaps the greatest artwork of the Renaissance. Student can inspect his masterpiece, The Last Judgement, and other frescoes in the chapel by Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and Ghirlandaio.
The Galleria Borghese is set within the Villa Borghese Pinciana, renowned for its gardens. A substantial part of the Borghese collection of paintings, sculptures and antiquities come from the 1st-3rd centuries AD including classical and neo-classical sculptures such as the Venus Victrix and a beautiful ceiling fresco by the Sicilian artist Mariano Rossi.
