Palazzo Barberini inaugurates new layout of rooms dedicated to the 18th century

Starting April 12, 2019, the new ten rooms of the South Wing of the National Galleries of Ancient Art - Palazzo Barberini, in Rome, will be open to the public.

The Gallerie Nazionali di Arte Antica - Palazzo Barberini inaugurates on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 6 p.m. the new layout of the ten exhibition rooms in the South Wing of the piano nobile and will be open to the public from April 12, 2019.

A new exhibition design with a new lighting system, new graphics and new apparatus, panels and captions, to present visitors with works between the Neapolitan seventeenth century and the eighteenth century, depicting portraits, views, as well as Grand Tour painters and paintings from the Lemme donation.

An opportunity to once again be able to admire masterpieces that have long not been exhibited or rarely, recently restored works. Among the infrequently exhibited works are Francesco Furini’s Judith and Holofernes, Carlo Maratti’s canvases of the Apostles made for Cardinal Antonio Barberini, and van Wittel’s views.

In the rooms of Neapolitan Painting and the one dedicated to Pompeo Bat oni, a number of works by artists, such as Bernardo Cavallino, Salvator Rosa, Francesco Solimena, Pierre Subleyras, and Pompeo Batoni, will be exhibited semi-annually to allow for the presence of more works without altering the layout (from October there will be 82).

Also on view will be the complete collection of paintings donated by Fabrizio and Fiammetta Lemme in 1998, for a total of 21 presentation models of works created by artists, such as Giuseppe Chiari, Sebastiano Conca, Domenico Corvi.
