  The Galleria Borghese, Rome



Galleria Borghese is a unique museum collecting sculptures, mosaics and paintings from the XV to the XVIII century.

The 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.

Cardinal 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 and Caravaggio.
