Art & Architecture Site Visit to the Galleria Borghese

Date Published: Nov. 9, 2016

For the last Art & Architecture visit of the semester, students had the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful museums of Rome: the Galleria Borghese. Dr. Robinson and students saw and discussed incredible works by renowned artists, such as Caravaggio, Titian, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini. A highlight for students was seeing Bernini’s remarkably detailed “Apollo and Daphne” and extraordinarily life-like “Pluto and Persephone.”  Viewing the stunning Baroque paintings and sculptures housed in the Galleria Borghese is a great way to conclude the Art and Architecture trips of the semester.
