I saw the retrospective of the self-taught artist, Mimi Quilici Buzzacchi (temporary exhibit) and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a small, manageable museum located in a former convent. In addition to the art you can see two cloisters. A number of stairs lead up to the entrance. Once inside, an elevator is available.

Glad we were able to visit this Mecca of architecture and masterworks of art on our last day in Roma. Once you enter, be prepared to walk around in a daze. The sight of Bernini's mesmerizing Medusa is a must and so is a massive arch-shaped 17 Century painting by Francesco Barbieri (probably 24 ft x 12 ft) "The Burial... More

Apparently unmentioned by most guide information, even the TI at Colisseum seemed unaware that this existed and were surprised when their database came up with it. I assume that the city is struggling to find anywhere large enough to put its collection and so, this building has two long standing but temporary exhibitions ending shortly both of which are enjoyable...

Even though it is currently under renovation, the museum offers only one open room to the visitors. Interesting exhibit in a very beautiful building. I currently would not advise to make a detour to visit it, however if you pass by it on your way to the Etruscan museum why not go in?

Although the collection was small, the works were interesting and well-displayed. After visiting a larger museum, it felt rather serene to wander through this place. Be aware that the gallery is on a rather steep hill.

This museum has a small but excellent collection of works by artists who are not nearly as well known as they should be.

Pretty small and average museum, nothing very interesting. Sculptures and paintings from the end of the 1800's to 1930's, but definitely not the most stunning ones I've seen. Rome has definitely better things to offer.

Sure there were some well-known artists on display but it was such a pleasure to see works by many Italian artists that most of us have never heard of. The Galleria might be off the beaten track but it’s certainly worth a visit. We loved the installation of statues on broken mirrors behind the reception desk! And we got to... More

As so many buildings in Rome this too is a big and fabulous one. The permanent collection is very generous and interesting with both paintings and alot of sculpture works. Good food in the restaurant too, a bit small portions but tasty.

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
