Age before beauty? Not when it comes to art. You'll find both combined at Palazzo Barberini and Galleria Corsini. Palazzo Barberini is home to Renaissance highlights from Raphael, Caravaggio and more. And the Galleria Corsini has sculptures, bronzes, and paintings by Beato Angelico, Rubens Reni and more. Great art in stunning surroundings!
Palazzo Corsini dates back to 1511, when Cardinal Raffaele Riario (1461-1521) erected it on his property. The building became the residence of Queen Christina of Sweden when she abdicated the throne and moved to Rome. So yes, it's had quite a varied past!
Enter today and see this prototypical Baroque palace from the inside out. The building itself is spectacular, but the stunning works of art and relatively crowd-free viewing experience elevate this above the usual museum outing. Collection highlights include works by the great masters, including Raphael's La Fornarina, Judith Beheading Holofernes by Caravaggio, and dramatic works by Titian, El Greco, Tintoretto and more!
The 18th-century part of the collection features works by Maratti, Batoni, Canaletto, Subleyras, Mengs, and van Wittel. And if you're bookish, you'll love the smell of knowledge in the ancient library!

The model for La Fornarina was a baker's daughter named Margherita Luti. She was known to be Raphael's mistress and muse. On her upper arm she sports a bracelet with 'Raphael Urbinas' written on it, the Renaissance equivalent of a high school girl wearing her boyfriend's leather jacket.
