Doria Pamphilj Gallery, Rome
The Doria Pamphilj Gallery, in the wonderful palazzo between Piazza del Collegio Romano and Via del Corso, is one of Rome’s leading private art collections.
The Gallery, its design inspired by the Palace of Versailles, retains much of its original furniture, including mirrors with frames in pure gold and Murano and Bohemian crystal chandeliers, and boasts some of the main masterpieces of 17th and 18th century Flemish masters.
In the Gallery (4 wings and 2 halls) are the works of Velàzquez, Bernini, Bellini, Jan and Pieter Brueghel, two Caravaggio canvases and much more besides, all in the wonderful architectural setting that still conserves the remains of 16th century frescoes in the recesses of the building complex.
