  • Picture gallery full of masterpieces but mostly unacknowledged art circuits. Include works by Correggio and Parmigianino. The imposing brick building, originally home of service rooms of the palazzo ducale. The Ducal Palace was destroyed by the bombings of 1944, impressive vestiges remain accesible from the homonymous piazza. The bombing did not spare even the teatro Farnese: hit by unexploded aerial bomb, burst into flames as a result of the kinetic impact. Rebuilt with a philological restoration, pays tribute to the leadership of one of the first indoor theatres of history. It was built to accommodate only one representation, with music by Monteverdi, in honor of the visit of a crowned head of the era. The architecture of the place has its own sumptuous loveliness: impressive buildings, but airy, ventilated by a particular light, shimmering. Opens the spirit to the encounter with the masterpieces of the gallery. Many commentators scandalized for bivouacs workers or women lying in the Sun, in a place that's supposed to be solemn. Get it wrong, because the Majesty of the place overlooks and towers up on the poor things of contemporaneity.

  • 從火車站走過去大約10分鐘左右可以到,就在和平廣場後方,據說裡面有博物館和美術館,是來到帕爾瑪必遊景點,可惜我是出差到這裡的,沒有足夠的時間入殿參觀,不過至少知道具體位置,下次一定要走進去看看。 
  • Construção impressionante do século 16. O Teatro Farnese também é incrível. Vale a pena visitar
  • We really liked the environment and the surrounding areas of the palace.
  • Imposing monument to an era of ducal control. Theater is astounding even though guide told us it had only seen 9 productions! Would have liked to see national gallery but ran out of time
  • Home to the national gallery! Impressive palace
  • Nice ^o^
