The Palazzo Mattei di Giove is the most prominent among a group of Mattei houses that forms the insula Mattei in Rome, Italy, a block of buildings of many epochsTo distinguish this section from the others it carries the name of a Mattei fief, Giove. The Mattei owned a number of other palazzi that carried the family name including Palazzo Mattei di Trastevere across the Tiber as well as properties in Umbria, the Palazzo Mattei Paganica.DescriptionCarlo Maderno designed the palace at the beginning of the 17th century for Asdrubale Mattei, Marquis di Giove and father of Girolamo Mattei and Luigi Mattei. He was also the brother of Ciriaco Mattei and Cardinal Girolamo Mattei. It was Maderno who was responsible for the extravagantly enriched cornice on the otherwise rather plain stuccoed public façade, the piano nobile loggia in the courtyard and the rooftop loggia or altana.For the interior of the palazzo, Pietro da Cortona was commissioned to execute the pair of compositions on the ceiling of the gallery, dating before 1626. In the early 19th century, a group of paintings from the collection at the palazzo was purchased by William Hamilton Nisbet and removed to Scotland.

  • It also belongs to this beautiful palace with two entrances in two different streets where Caravaggio and Leopardi lived. A beautiful cornice with heraldic motifs of the Mattei and Gonzaga. Before an extraordinary opening let's enjoy what you can - atri, courtyards and the wonderful staircase to say the least.

  • Sometimes open to the public. There is a municipal institution in the building. The second floor of the patio could not be penetrated - it was blocked. The entrance to the courtyard is located on the side of the Turtle Fountain. The courtyard itself makes a very strong impression - very beautiful and atmospheric.

  • You can just wander through, streets that are preserved but also part of modern life. It feels like a film set. Take a few minutes to linger and soak up the atmosphere of this gorgeous part of Rome.  more »
