The white building of Borghese Gallery is located in the middle of Borghese Park, one of the largest green spaces in Rome. It was built by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V Borghese, who ruled in the XVII century, just for the purpose of containing his personal art collection. This Cardinal was quite a fascinating personality, obsessed by art, and he used all the possible methods to obtain every single piece of art he desired for his collection! Your private guide will recount to you anecdotes of his life and the political background of Rome from which it evolved. Just think: many of its artworks were commissioned with the specific intention of being displayed in Villa Borghese and you will be able to admire these art masterpieces in their original setting! In fact, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who was an art lover and a compulsive collector, requested works to the finest artists of his time, such as Bernini, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Canova, and then gathered their masterpieces in Villa Borghese.
