Immerse Yourself While visiting Galleria Borghese
The origins of Borghese Gallery link to a prominent historical figure named Cardinal Scipion: the son of Ortensia Borghese – Paolo V’s sister – and of Francesco Caffarelli.
For those new to this name, he was a man who was driven to collect artworks, ranging from Renaissance, ancient to contemporary.
The original sculptures and paintings in the Borghese Gallery trace their historical origins to a Cardinal Scipione’s collection. However, some prized pieces of this collection were lost over the next three centuries.
Cardinal Scipion wished for a golden vision in terms of art. He sought antique sculptures for his collection. The foresight of Cardinal Scipion manifests itself by his actions as he initiated the creation of new sculptures, especially marble ones.
Among the valued artworks, let’s mention “The statue of Pauline Bonaparte,” executed by Canova between 1805 and 1808, has been in the villa since 1838.
When we talk of lost items from the Louver Borghese Collection, a significant event occurred In 1807. Camillo Borghese sold Napoleon 154 statues, 160 busts, 170 bas-reliefs, 30 columns, and various vases, causing a big shuffle in artworks.
