  • We were not really aware that Villa Poniatowski existed. It is very rarely open, but if you are lucky you might be able to visit. Interesting but not spectacular.  more »
  • Restoration of the villa are in their infancy, and host monitoring staff is unfriendly but presented collections in 2017 (peoples of Latium and Umbria) have a certain aesthetic and historical interest.

  • So many years for restoration to get this result? Some areas of the villa appear already in decline or very neglected. The area outside the villa has the semblance of a garden even. Little evidence for the entrance of the exhibition, the driveway leads somewhere else (!). One room on the ground floor of the Museum, the rest appears woefully empty. Of particular interest the exhibits and the halls of the villa (especially indiana and the Egyptian woman) but the impression is that of an unfinished.

  • Splendid palace and very interesting collection!
  • Born as an outbuilding of the villa of Pope Julius III Villa Poniatowski owes its name to the grandson of the last king of Poland, Stanislaus Poniatowski, who, having moved to Rome in the late 18th century, chose this sixteenth-century building to make it his home. The refurbishment work was carried out by Giuseppe Valadier.

  • Department of the Etruscan Museum of Villa Julia. A remarkable place for admirers of Gogol as he was visiting on this Vila and lived here on the third floor, and nearby in the park of Villa Borghese you can see his monument. If you want to learn more about the history of Rome and its culture, please contact the Doctor of Art History, tour guide Rome Alexey on Facebook.

  • A part of Villa Giulia, for many years divided from the property and the building now houses the museo Etrusco, where Cardinal Cesi had commissioned his own villa, designed by Vignola, richly decorated with statues, fountains, ramps and stairs. In later years, the residence was transferred to the Borromeo family, then to the Aldobrandini, to the Cesi. a part of this villa was acquired by Stanislaus Poniatowski, nephew of the King of Poland, who commissioned the Valadier of renovation of the complex, in particular of the sixteenth-century building in via dell'arco obscure and implemented substantial renewal of the spaces, both interior and exterior, including the construction of stables on the via Flaminia, later transformed into the studio of the painter Mariano Fortuny. After multiple trades in the late nineteenth century entered the heritage of Alfredo Strohl-Fern, who transformed radically, with romantic style, in recent years at the conclusion of the procedure of expropriation the villa has entered the State assets, willing to be reunited with the nearby Valle Giulia to increase the supply of this museum. During the work of complete and accurate restoration, were found some valuable decorations dating back to the 16th century stage and in part to the intervention of Valadier, to whom, for example, are attributable, on the main floor, the paintings in the Indian Room and the Egyptian room, or columns. Of great importance is the decoration of the Farnese Hercules, documented by a sketch of the Valadier. Deemed now lost, the coffers are instead have reappeared and it was possible to recover this object. After fifteen years of restoration by public funds, which is fundamental to the discovery of the famous loggia described by Giorgio Vasari, lost for subsequent transformations also by Giuseppe Valadier.

  • Subsidiary premises of the Etruscan Museum of Valle Giulia is definitely interesting for those who like the Etruscan thanks to agreements with France, you enter through a back entrance to Villa Strohl Fern and not via Faminia which makes easier access and combines ideally the two museums devoted to the italic civilisations of the villa did not remain very much, given the multiple uses, including non-residential, so was employed. What remains, making it not to read the collection of villa La Tour is to be performed only with a thorough knowledge of the city or a specific interest to kind of exhibits
