The Palazzo Gabrielli-Borromeo is a palazzo in Rome, Italy. It is located in Via del Seminario, between piazza di Sant'Ignazio and the Pantheon in the ancient Campus Martius and in the second sector of the present-day Colonna rione, not far from Via del Corso.The first palazzo on the site was built by the Gabrielli family, counts of Gubbio, whilst its second name derives from its rebuilding and redecoration by cardinal Vitaliano Borromeo for use by the Jesuits. In 1605 the Jesuits paid 20,000 Scudos for the palace to use it as a Seminary. The Jesuit order was suppressed during the papacy of Clement XIV. In 1774 the Monte di Pietà of Rome purchased the palace for 32,000 scudi. In 1796 it was given to the fabbrica di San Pietro, however by 1824, it was returned to the Jesuit order.During the 19th century, the palace ownership changed hands a number of times. Since 1853, it has been attached to Roman Catholic colleges in the city, since 1930 it has been the site of the Jesuit postgraduate institution for Jesuits, the Collegio Bellarmino. The church of San Macuto is accessed from the courtyard.

  • On via Flaminia just outside the door of the People, along the Roman consular that led up to Ariminium, now Rimini, stands the Palazzo Borromeo, the palace that the Cardinal never lived and ended up in the property of the Colonna, then of the Balestra family and therefore in the never by Ugo Jandolo, a Roman antiquarian who in the early 1900s, before handing it over to the Italian state to make it the Embassy of Italy at the Holy See, restored it lovingly and with authentic passion as well understood by his own words " .... I FIND THIS PALACE IN GENDS AND HOW TO BRANDTHE PENDS ADDOSSO THE LEMBI OF YOUR REGAL DRESS" The fountain of Pope Julius III leaning against the blunt corner of the palace and its fountain of the basins and the nearby fountain on a bathtub Roman spa at 160 Flaminia Street tell extraordinary stories. Internal visits, currently suspended, but also the exterior and the fifth perspective of Villa Giulia between the two fountains, and a delicate sundial on the wall is worth a passage.

  • Stately home dating back to the 16th century Renaissance since its construction, passed through several noble families from Pope Pius IV Medici (who he struggle like Casino at Monte) to column and subsequent owners to the Italian State, which currently owns. Also on the via Flaminia monumental façade elements stand out (excluding the monumental source attached to his corner) such as rusticated gate with his bow which is known for its power and the upper loggia "aerial and graceful" with two Corinthian columns flanked by slender side pilasters. Unfortunately not open to visitors, but deserving, the interiors and the gardens that have a destination.

  • A guided tour organized by an association between the residents of the City Hall in this beautiful property on the via Flaminia. Finally the fountain and the portal that make us company at the traffic lights have a meaning and a story!
