Palazzo Barberini - Rome

The Palazzo Barberini is situated in Rione Trevi, on the Piazza of the same name. Dating back to the 17th century, it was designed by Maderno for Maffeo Barberini, who subsequently became Pope Urban VIII. After Maderno’s death in 1629, the reigns of control were handed to the celebrated architect, Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The great hall was decorated by Pietro da Cortona from 1633 to 1639: the allegorical theme centres on the Triumph of Providence and was intended to exalt the glory of the papal family. Today the palace is the home to the National Gallery of Ancient Art, whose collection includes works of masters such as Giulio Romano, Raffaello Sanzio, Perugino, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Tiepolo, Hans Holbein and Poussin.
