What people say

"È qui conservato il San Giovanni Battista (1604- 06), la cui attribuzione è stata a lungo oggetto di dibattito. Ancora una volta, l’attenzione si concentra sulla libertà di Caravaggio nel trattare un’iconografia tradizionale. Assente la tradizionale pelliccia di cammello con cui si identifica il santo, appena evidenti altri attributi, come la ciotola, riferimento al battesimo di Gesù, e la croce, quasi nascosta, al bordo del dipinto. San Giovanni è qui seminudo, senza barba, coperto dal mantello rosso. La rappresentazione di un momento di riposo durante la penitenza è resa più attuale, senza mediazioni. Ct "

"The Palazzo Corsini is a prominent late-Baroque palace located in Rome, Italy. It was erected for the Corsini family between 1730 and 1740 as an elaboration of the prior building on the site, a 15th-century villa of the Riario family, based on designs of Ferdinando Fuga. The palace is now home to the first floor of the National Gallery of Antique Art (Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica), which houses a collection of mainly Italian art from the early Renaissance to the late 18th century. The Corsini family donated most of the masterpieces in the 1800s."
"The Gallerie Nazionali di Arte Antica, or National Galleries of Ancient Art, encompasses two main locations - Palazzo Barberini and Palazzo Corsini. Both galleries boast an impressive collection of Renaissance and Baroque art, featuring works by Italian masters such as Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian. The galleries provide a rich visual journey through Italy's artistic legacy. Opening hours: 08.30 till 19.00. Closed: Tuesdays, January 1, December 25, 26. Admission: 10 Euros."
