Art & Architecture Site Visit to the Galleria Borghese

Date Published: Apr. 19, 2017

For the last Art and Architecture site visit of the semester, students had the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful museums of Rome: the Galleria Borghese. The antiquities are housed in the Villa once owned by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V. Dr. Robinson (Art and Architecture professor) and two guest guides led students through the museum and discussed several incredible works by renowned artists Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Antonio Canova.  The guides encouraged students to comment on the sculptures and paintings since they have nearly completed their studies in Art and Architecture and are well equipped to engage the works firsthand. Viewing these stunning Baroque paintings and sculptures displayed in the Galleria is a great way to conclude the Art and Architecture trips of the semester.
