In November 2015, the public will have the opportunity to visit some of Rome’s most important palaces, as part of the third edition of Palazzi di Roma a Porte Aperte, organised by Turismo Culturale Italiano. This great initiative, starting from November the 1st, will allow tourists, as well as locals, to take a peek into the magnificent houses of the important roman families, most of which are rarely opened to the public.
The private collections of these houses contain artistic masterpieces from the Middle-Ages to the twentieth century and represent the great humanistic culture of Italy. Among the jewels found in these private collections, are works of art by Italian masters such as Peruzzi, Raphael, Sangallo, Vignola, Vasari, Caravaggio, Guido Reni, Guercino, Vasanzio, Bernini, Borromini, Moretti, Canova and Valadier.
There will be guided tours of the palaces, some more well-known, some less. A really interesting fact is that people will get to see some palazzi that have played a huge role in the history of the city, and are still used nowdays by the State. Among the palaces are: Palazzo della Cancelleria, Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo Tonti, Palazzo della Valle, Palazzo Barberini, Palazzo Brancaccio, Palazzo Capranica, Palazzo Carpegna, the collection Doria-Pamphilj, Palazzo Spada, Palazzo Falconieri and many others.
There will, also, be organized bus tours to palaces outside of Rome, like Palazzo Doria Pamphilj in Valmontone, Palazzo Rospigliosi in Zagarolo, Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia, Palazzo Altieri in Oriolo Romano and Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola.
