Palazzo Pallavicini Rospigliosi, Rome

4.3
#371 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
The Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi is a palace in Rome, Italy. It was built by the Borghese family on the Quirinal Hill; its footprint occupies the site where the ruins of the baths of Constantine stood, whose remains still are part of the basement of the main building, the Casino dell'Aurora. Its first inhabitant was the famed art collector Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the nephew of Pope Paul V, who wanted to be housed near the large papal Palazzo Quirinale. The palace and garden of the Pallavicini-Rospigliosi were the product of the accumulated sites and were designed by Giorgio Vasanzio and Carlo Maderno in 1611 - 16. Scipione owned this site for less than a decade, 1610 - 16, and commissioned the construction and decoration of the casino and pergolata, facing the garden of Montecavallo. The Roman palace of this name should not be mistaken for the panoramic Villa Pallavicino on the shores of Lake Como in Lombardy.

  • Very nice this Palace, which I did not know and where we did with the company an event. Also guests are pleasantly surprised by the sophistication and the spaces, in addition to the position in front of the Quirinale. In fact the jewel that is seen very little from outside, all is protected by a high wall and even within one must walk 1-2 minutes. Nice garden. The Palace was built in 1600, with the destruction of part of the baths of Constantine. Consists of a series of interesting buildings that I plan to go visit If you enjoyed this review, you can read my other for Rome (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • for all those who find themselves in Rome the first day of a month of the year, with the exception of the months of July and August, this visit is possible between 10: 00 and noon then 15: 00 and 17: 00. The tour is free and it is an opportunity to see a beautiful fresco of Guido Reni and (one of the few or) the only in a public building. On the same topic of the morning it is interesting to compare it to that of the Carracci in the Casino Boncompagni Ludovisi, the subject in the first is handled much more calmly and majestically, more academically in sum while in the second the powerful breath of Nature shines through clearly.

  • The villa on the Pallavicini Rospigliosi Quirinale unveils its many gems from the Palace, terraced garden and with the casino dell'aurora which hides in the basement the remains of the baths of Constantine that the villa was built, as well as one of the most amazing Panorama of Rome. The gorgeous Villa which opens to our admiration transcending the long and high wall (almost bastion) running along via XXIV maggio, was commissioned by cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V and completed in 1613 by Carlo Maderno. In the implementation of three terraces Giovanni Vasanzio, each with its own casino making up the garden, sloping down to largo Magnanapoli. The villa (it is more accurate to call it a true architectural ensemble) in near Casino dell'aurora the gem more elegant, embellished the façade from Roman sarcophagi, bearing precious frescoes by Guido Reni, including the vault of the room main, the Aurora, as well as frescos by Paul Brill, and the storm and the famous Roman sculpture "Venus Rospigliosi", Athena, Artemis the Huntress. The access to it is also remarkable with the dual "scale of the Shepherdess" adorned with statues and marble busts of Roman age that goes to a secret roof garden. Last but not least, the Prince's Palace their home from the early 18th century Rospigliosi, Pallaviicni, accessed by a rusticated arch surmounted by the heraldic emblems of Crest that blends two houses, which gives access to the large courtyard garden and carried on, Finally the Palace. Inside the gallery houses one of the richest and most famous collections of Italian paintings with masterpieces by Guido Reni, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro da Cortona, Domenichino, a series of drawings of Bernini as well as many other notable paintings. In the loggia annexed other frescoes by Guido reni and Paul Bril.

  • The environment here is very good.
  • Thanks for San Bonaventura.
  • If you are around the area, the date is the first day of the month (except January for obvious reasons), and the time is within 10-12h or 15-17h, then for sure go see Guido Reni's beautiful fresco on the ceiling of the only room open to public. The façade of the palazzo is also lovely.
  • A place that is located in the residence of the Pallavicini.... In front of the Quirinale... I was disappointed because I thought all the locals were visitable...... To alas most closed except the Casino Hall of the Aurora..!!! Not even the beautiful walkable garden avenues...!!! And even worse, no photos..... In short, a disappointment.....

  • Beautiful guided tour with the association Roma Sparita. Historic palace of Rome a short walk from the Quirinale. Built unfortunately completely destroying the baths of Constantine has passed between various owners belonging to the Roman nobility and not. Only visited on the first day of the month. Palace still inhabited by the Pallavicini family and therefore can only be visited, as it were said, the mess of the aurora with the masterpiece of Guido Reni. Wonder for the eyes
