Via della Lungara, 10 - 00165, Roma
The collections of the Corsini family came to form during the seventeenth century with Cardinal Neri Corsini. Later, works were added by the branch of the family already established in Rome, thanks to direct purchases of Pope Clement XII. The family, in fact, received many gifts due to its preeminent social position gained by its new status. In 1883, the building was sold to the State, to which were donated the collections. It has only recently been possible to reconstruct the Corsini Gallery, as an autonomous entity, bringing back together most of the original materials to its historic setting. The gallery features paintings from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, predominantly artists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (including Brother Angelico, Rubens, and Luca Giordano), ancient and modern sculptures (the latter mostly from the Torlonia collection), bronzes and eighteenth century furniture. The Roman, Neapolitan and Bolognese schools are well represented, particularly from the seventeenth century, with important groups of "bamboccianti" and artists specializing in landscapes.

How to get there
The Corsini Gallery
The elegant Villa Corsini is the central site of the three Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica (National Gallery of Ancient Art) exhibition locations.
The collections of the Corsini family began during the 17th century with Cardinal Neri Corsini. Later, works were added by the branch of the family already established in Rome, thanks to direct purchases of Pope Clement XII, Cardinal Neri's nephew. In fact, the family received many gifts due to its preeminent social position.
In 1883, the State purchased the villa, and received the collections as a donation. The Corsini Gallery was only recently reconstructed as an autonomous entity, bringing most of the original materials back to their historic setting.
The gallery features a large collection of 17th and 18th century regional Italian painting (Roman, Neapolitan, and Bolognese schools) as well as works by Fra Angelico, Luca Giordano, Rubens, Murrillo, Poussin, Brueghel, and Caravaggio. The 17th century painting is particularly strongly represented with important groups of Bamboccianti (small cabinet paintings of Rome and its popular life), and artists specializing in landscapes. The Corsini Gallery also contains ancient and modern sculptures (the latter mostly from the famed Torlonia collection), bronzes, and 18th century furniture.
