We enjoyed strolling around this small, quiet gallery. There are only four rooms, originally a house, but the house itself is interesting and there are loads of paintings, sculptures and ornate furniture to see. There are printed guides in several languages available in the first room, to explain a bit about each artwork. Lastly, in the garden, there’s Borromini’s Perspective, a Baroque perspective illusion. We also encountered a glorious fat cat sunning himself in a bed of clover, who was only too happy for some fussing. The artworks were great but the fat cat was the best part.
A small and modest gallery in comparison to the other great galleries of Rome. For me, Borromini's perspective arch in the garden was a highlight. For a small entry fee of 5 euro, this gallery is well worth a one hour visit.
