Palazzo Braschi - Rome

The rather massive Palazzo Braschi was built at the end of the 18th century in Neo-Classicalal style by Cosimo Morelli. Its various façades are embellished with the heraldic symbols of the Braschi family (lilies and stars) and Onesti family (a lion's head with a pine cone in its mouth). Inside, a magnificent monumental staircase attributed to Morelli leads up to the noble floors. It was decorated by Liborio Coccetti with historical and mythological frescos. Nowadays the palace is home to the Museo di Roma which endeavours to trace the cultural, social, historical, artistic and topographic life of the city of Rome from the Middle Ages to the first half of the 20th century. There is a particularly good collection of paintings, sculpture, engravings and photographs.
