Rome is the city of marble: walking through the narrow streets of the center you can find fountains, niches, statues, decorations on the palaces’ facades… However, it’s also inside a museum that you can feel the essence of Italian sculpture. The Borghese Museum is the icon of XVII century art, it was built by Scipione Borghese, cardinal-nephew to the Pope Paul V, a clever art connoisseur and avid collector of paintings and statues. Located at the edge of Rome, originally the museum was the private villa of the cardinal and used to house his personal collection of art.
Today the Borghese Museum contains a fascinating collection of masterpieces: paintings by Raphael, Caravaggio, Lanfranco and Domenichino; amazing statues like Gianlorenzo Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne; classical sculptures and mosaics.
