  • Artemisia Gentileschi to the galleria Spada was our first goal of 8 December.  In the sixteenth century Palazzo Capodiferro, the gallery houses collections in four rooms. The cluster of works (many at height impossible) does not allow a proper vision of masters such as Guido Reni, Guercino and Titian. I would like to be contradicted, but in the catalog were shown paintings by Annibale Carracci places miserably and just as miserably. In short, a quantity of works in a wild bunch. However "The nursing Madonna" and "Santa Cecilia" of Artemisia we admire even though they are not the works that more I like the artist. We redo the eyes with the admirable work of Borromini: perspective Gallery, where you see a Colonnade at the end of which appears a large statue of a warrior. Is an incredible optical illusion: believe to see a gallery of considerable length at the end of which there is a courtyard with a large statue. In fact the distance between the entrance and the statue is about 10 meters and the statue is 60 cm. Wonderful!

  • I reviewed a few days ago the spada Gallery real treasure trove of Roman Baroque. truly remarkable to see and not to be missed for those who come to Rome.

  • You don't have to pay the entrance fee to the museum, which is small and uninteresting (in my opinion), to see the optical illusion by Borromini, which IS worth seeing.

  • Well..the gallery itself is small and nice..not more then that.. But, the optical illusion was just amazing. I went to the Gallery especially for that and it fulfilled all my expectations
  • Small gallery, located inside an historical building. Famous for the forced perspective of Francesco Borromini. Worth a visit.
  • The forced perspective corridor was disappointing but the gallery was quite impressive, no information on any of the painting though!
  • The perspective corridor was incredible making the length look 30m but it was actually 8m the gallery is beautiful also with unique paintings and sculptures I recommend to anyone on a budget
  • Great collection of paintings. The forced-perspective by Borromini is also a must-see
