  • Boncompagni Ludovisi Museum for Decorative Arts, Costume and fashion from the 19th and 20th centuries the House Museum of early 20th century belonged to the Boncompagni Ludovisi family, destined to decorative arts documentation and promotion center, fashion and Costume, intended as an evolution of social taste of the modern period. A common thread unites these distinct cultures and the history of taste for the beauty and quality of product realization. The Museum is located on via Boncompagni in Rome in Villa Boncompagni Ludovisi, designed in 1901 by ing. Giovanni Battista Juvenal, is an example of eclectic architecture, expressive of taste called "barocchetto romano" of the early 20th century that mix Art Nouveau elements. The building is located between Porta Salaria and Porta Pinciana, where once stood in the 17th century Villa Ludovisia. Il villino edificiato on behalf of Prince Luigi Boncompagni Ludovisi, became home to a branch of the noble family. The building consists of four levels: a basement, where were located the kitchen, laundry room and accommodations, a floor, or piano nobile representation; a mezzanine level which was used as a wardrobe, ironing and other accommodation; Finally, an initial plan to sleeping area for the family. The House has had various transformations and in 1932 were modified the trim and flooring on the main floor and an elevator still functioning was introduced. The mansion was inhabited by Prince Andrea Boncompagni and his wife, Alice Blanceflor de Bildt, Swedish noblewoman, who resided here even after her husband's death and remarriage with the lawyer. Adolfo Gancia. In 1970 Blanceflor granted the property and furnishings of the Italian State representation plan, to be used as a "cultural purposes of public utility". In 1972 the noblewoman's death the House was taken over by the Ministry for cultural and environmental heritage and after restoration in 1995 was opened as a museum dedicated to the Decorative Arts, Costume and fashion from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum displays permanently the original furnishings of the Villa (armchairs, chairs, vases and ornaments secretaire rocaille, taste) and a rotating object collections of decorative art, clothing and fashion accessories. In the Museum are works by Galileo Chini, Duilio Cambellotti, Alfredo Biagini, Ernesto Basile, Vittorio Grassi and other artists from the 19th and 20th centuries Italian which Camillo Innocenti, Felice Carena, Giacomo Balla and Giorgio De Chirico. Great importance is given to the history of costume and fashion through many famous clothing designers and important fashion houses that illustrate the evolution of Italian fashion since the late 19th until the last decades of the twentieth century. Are present in the various rooms costumes and dresses of some famous Roman maison which Fausto Sarli, Fernanda Gattinoni, Angelo Litrico, Valentino, Raffaella Curiel, Marella Ferrera, Lorenzo Riva and Renato Balestra. Opening hours: from Tuesday to Sunday 9.30-19 free admission .00 CONCLUSIONS As not to be fascinated by this unknown Museum, which elegantly sports art and costume of a modern society in constant evolution, portrayed by artists and evidenced by the art of everyday life. A witness due to those arts, sometimes wrongly considered minors, who have done and are doing great on our country.

  • Museum not to be missed. Met by chance passeghiando in this area of Rome less applies. Staff and volunteers.

  • This museum is great. Very close to Via Veneto and the American Embassy. It is free of charge. On Sunday visited him there were very few people. It was the residence, "villino" call it, of a very rich family. We saw porcelains, furniture, tapestries, glass, pictures and models unique to the most famous couturiers of Rome.

  • Boncompagni Ludovisi Decorative Arts Museum (Museo Boncompagni Ludovisi per le arti decorative, often abbreviated as the Museo Boncompagni), Rome, is the Decorative Arts Museum of the National Gallery of Modern Art of Rome.
  • Such a wonderful treat! Off the usual tourist path, exquisite decorative arts collection, and very helpful and nice staff.
  • Gem of a museum in Rome. Hidden away with a great collection.
  • Really good selection of paintings, furniture and fashion- museum opens only at preset intervals. It doesn't say it clearly but one is supposed to wait at the front doors (locked). The curators will open them on the dot. No photos allowed, and that's a shame!
