Borghese is a unique museum collecting
sculptures, mosaics and paintings from
the XV to the XVIII century.
original sculptures and paintings in the
Borghese Gallery date back to Cardinal
Scipione's collection, though subsequent
events over the next three centuries
entailing both losses and acquisition
have left their mark.
Scipione was drawn to any works of
ancient, Renaissance and contemporary
art which might re-evoke a new golden
age. He was not particularly interested
in medieval art, but passionately sought
to acquire antique sculpture. Cardinal
Scipione was so ambitious that he
promoted the creation of new sculptures
and especially marble groups to rival
antique works. Particularly famous are
the sculptures by Bernini and Canova as
well as paintings by Raffaello, Tiziano
