  • Now seat of the Italian Senate. It was built on the end of 1400. Open to the public. Recommended for small groups-

  • It is really true and Madama in question was called Margaret of Austria that in 1533 had the occasion to visit the Palace just eleven years old before she became wife of Alessandro de ' Medici. He returned eight years later as the wife of Ottavio Farnese, this time because the former husband had since died. You did so good will by the Romans for its polite manners and refined Madama became his name, as well as synonymous with the Palace, Villa Madama and a village outside Rome, Castel Madama. In 1737 the Palace became the property to physicians in the person of Cosimo III which gave provisions for a radical restructuring that ended with a Baroque façade designed by Paolo Marucelli. There followed several changes in ownership and subsequently was bought by the Church: in this period suffered repeated changes of intended use (seat of the Governorship in the Ministry of Finance (from his central balcony was the lottery). He was also papal police headquarters and the appellation Madama attributed sometimes to law enforcement doesn't mean anything to you? You came in 1870 when it became the seat of the Senate, obviously before the reign and then of the Republic, when it underwent several expansions. As an example, this House was built by a Senatorial inner courtyard, then the adjacent Palazzo Carpegna became the seat of its offices, after being demolished and rebuilt. While it was remade on front of Palazzo Madama overlooking via della Dogana and Old and was connected with Palazzo Giustiniani through an underground passageway. The monumental façade of the Marucelli on Piazza Madama features three floors each with nine Windows and is accessed through a portal that leads to the main courtyard. In guided climbs with the grand staircase covered by an ornate wooden ceiling. You enter then in the sala Maccari with wall frescoes on the life of the Roman Senate and Republican to ceiling medallions that depict farming, the weapons, the arts, business, humanities and Sciences. It then goes to Italy Room where you can see the wooden statue of Vadhani depicting the Italy, continue along the signature Room embellished with a beautiful golden coffered ceiling with three tapestries on the walls of the medici collection; also in the Marconi room and in the anteroom of the balustrade decorated ceilings stand out finishing. Memorable ostrich room that boasts a ceiling. And then to top it off the Senate floor made entirely of wood that causes a little thrill of emotion. Raising his eyes to the ceiling with the medallions of the four giureconsulti, of four civic virtue and the four capitals of kingdoms before unity, then watching the Red tapestry that lining the walls, and you get back to armchairs, benches or whatever you want, is the President of both senators and then back to a 360° vision.

  • We visited in group one of Europe's most beautiful institutional buildings, accompanied by a competent Guide and affable that pointed out the endless artistic features of this place steeped in history. If you can, try to visit it, consistent with the lack of reception for tourists!
