Listed under Art Collections in Rome, Italy.

Pin It

The Galleria Borghese houses a substantial part of the Borghese collection of paintings, sculpture and antiquities. The collection orginated in the 1600s with Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of the Pope. Primarily a collector of classical and neoclassical sculpture, he also patronised contemporary artists and commissioned from, amongst others, Caravaggio, Bernini, Domenichino and Rubens.

An intimate collection of beautiful marble scluptures of Bernini, which are certainly worth a visit if you are in Rome for a cultural stay.
