    How often have you heard the names of extraordinary artists such as Raphael, Caravaggio, Veronese, Bernini, and Canova? How many times have you seen Cranach’s Venus or Titian’s Sacred and Profane Love or Canova’s Paolina Borghese as Venus Victorious, sculpted by Canova? You’ll find all of these masterpieces in the Borghese Gallery.

    This magnificent art collection is housed in the Villa Borghese Pinciana, owned by the noble Borghese family since 1580. The core of this collection are the sculptures and paintings of Cardinal Scipione Borghese (1579-1633), nephew of Pope Paul V and future patron of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. 

    In 1607, Pope Paul V added to his nephew’s collection by giving him 107 paintings confiscated from the painter Giuseppe Cesari, known as the Cavaliere d’Arpino. The following year, Raphael’s The Deposition was added to the collection, secretly seized from the Baglioni Chapel in the Church of St Francis, near Perugia.
    In 1807, Camillo Borghese sold Napoleon Bonaparte 154 statues, 160 busts, 170 reliefs, 30 columns and various vases that form the Louvre’s Borghese Collection.

    Upon request, we would be delighted to book you a private tour of the Borghese Gallery, accompanied by the city's best guides.
