One of the most extraordinary Italian private collections

An extraordinary palazzo on the Quirinal Hill, with decorations by artists the likes of Orazio Gentileschi, Guido Reni (the Casino features his splendid Aurora fresco), Agostino Tassi, and Domenichino. The collection of over six hundred paintings (studied and catalogued for the first time by Federico Zeri) remains the largest private collection of Old Master painting in Italy. The furnishings include: Flemish furniture, scenery sets for parties, silver ceremonial plates, leather items, fine fabrics, bowls, candlesticks, gold fruit bowls, mirrors, pieces in ivory, jewellery, vases, precious stones, bronzes, marble objects, musical instruments, clocks, and more, an amazing collection of objects from the late 17th and early 18th century, ranging from the Flemish Genoese style to the Roman Baroque.
