Doria Pamphili palace - Roma

The construction of the Palazzo Doria Pamphili after the cardinal Giovanni Fazio Santoro's order took place in 1505. Unfortunately, he was obliged to give it away to his nephew, the Duke of Urbino in 1508. Later, the property was bought by the cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini in 1601 and was refurbished until 1648. At the cardinal Ippolito Aldobrandini's death, his only heiress, Olimpia junior, married Camillo Pamphili, pope Innocent X's nephew. In 1660, the palace was enlarged and the rococo façade on the piazza del Colegio Romano was finished. In 1734, Gabriele Valvassori was charged to rebuild the façade on the Via Corso. When, in 1760, the last of the Pamphilis died, the Doria family claimed the property to be theirs because of a previous marriage between both families. Then, the Dorias redecorated the inside with a late baroque style but it is only during the XIXth century that the owners considered the real value of their collection and started to show it off.
