Come and Discover:
In the very heart of Rome, near piazza Venezia, the Doria Pamphilj palace stands out by its size. Walking along the via del Corso its front door invites you to peek and to step in the inner Renaissance courtyard, a real prelude to the visit of the painting collection.
The palace is still owned by the descendants of the family of Pope Innocent X (1644-1655) and the gallery ranks painters as renowned as Brueghel, Vélasquez, Tiziano, Caravaggio, Raphaël. It is amazing though to realize that the paintings sometimes are hard to admire in full, as they line the walls like wallpaper!
How did the Pamphilj family manage to accumulate so much and what were the tastes and the guidelines of collectors from the 17th to the 19th century? Who were the people who shaped this space with their culture and personality?
