FREE WEBINAR | “Treasures of the Borghese Gallery in Rome – Part I”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
In 17th-century Rome, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V, assembled one of the greatest art collections in history, which is still visible today in one of Rome’s most popular museums – the Borghese Gallery. His eclectic taste combined works from ancient times through to his own contemporary Baroque artists, such as the tormented painter Caravaggio, as well as the phenomenally talented sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini.
This webinar will examine the history of the Villa Borghese, as well as some of Bernini’s breathtaking mythological statues such as Apollo and Daphne and Pluto and Persephone.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
