Raffaello, Tiziano, Rubens: A Unique Exhibition at Palazzo Barberini

From March 29 to June 30, visitors will have the unique opportunity to enjoy fifty masterpieces coming from the Borghese Gallery within the magnificent setting of Palazzo Barberini, situated in the heart of the city center, a few steps away from the Quirinal Palace.

The collaboration between Galleria Borghese and Palazzo Barberini represents a modern union that projects both institutions into a future characterized by sustainability, knowledge sharing, and enhanced accessibility. Through innovative initiatives and joint efforts, these cultural Roman landmarks are forging new ways towards a more interconnected and forward-thinking approach.

An event of the highest institutional value testifying to the proximity, not only geographical but also professional, that links the two museums. In the footsteps of Scipione Borghese and Maffeo Barberini, who would have appreciated today’s initiative, we hope that the public will be able to admire the Borghese masterpieces at Palazzo Barberini and celebrate this exhibition, which will be difficult to repeat in the coming decades,” said Thomas Clement Salomon, Director of the National Galleries of Ancient Art.

The press conference on March 28 was the opportunity to celebrate this joint initiative and learn more about the conservation and art maintenance process which is often a challenging and expensive one.

Francesca Cappelletti, Director of the Galleria Borghese, ensure continuity in the Roman art world: “During the important works of the PNRR that will change the appearance of the Pinacoteca on the first floor of the building, the Galleria Borghese, with an exceptional effort of all its staff, will never close and will remain open during the works. The exhibition at Palazzo Barberini will make it possible to make the Gallery’s heritage always visible and to establish relations and resonances with another exceptional Baroque collection and with another great museum institution”.
