Francesca Barberini



is an art historian with a degree from the University of Rome La Sapienza, and who lives in Rome, city she truly loves. Francesca is a member of the illustrious Barberini family that produced Pope Urban VIII, who consecrated and decorated the new St Peter’s Basilica. She spent several years cataloguing art religious buildings in central Italy, she began leading tours in Rome and surroundings. Her knowledge of art is, literally, encyclopedic! Although she leads tours of all the major sites in Rome, she loves leading tours in Roman palaces focusing on the way people use to live in the “Palazzi” and the way their collections of art where “used” in daily life, expressing the ideas of the family and is completing a book on the subject. She also loves leading tours in roman churches showing the way art has been the best medium to express deep ideas and concepts of their time. With Francesca, context is key!
