Palazzo Altemps: a Renaissance palace, a unique sculpture collection and a surprising modern art exhibit





Sunday February 11, 10 am: Guided visit in english to Palazzo Altemps - a Renaissance palace, a unique sculpture collection and a surprising modern art exhibit.

Palazzo Altemps, few meters away from Navona square, is a wonderful Renaissance palace once owned by Cadinal Altemps, nowadays houses a collection of antiquities assembling the statues of the leading roman families of the past, one for all: the legendary Boncompagni-Ludovisi collection. 
Just the location and the statues exposed should be enough to make of this museum a must for every visitor of the city.  But in the next months the museum will be furthermore enriched by the exhibition dedicated to Piero Fornasetti (Milan, 1913-Milan, 1988) "Practical Citations". 


The greek and roman masterpieces are surrounded by surreal art pieces of this Italian polyhedral artist, creating a surprising vision where past and present creations are surprisingly talking the same language of art, a language based on symmetry and balanced forms.
