You will be met our specialised guide in the middle of Campo de’ Fiori beneath the famous statue of Giordano Bruno. Then you will be taken through Piazza Farnese to the Palazzo Spada. This building was built by Cardinal Girolamo Capodiferro in 1550 and then in 1632 it was bought by the Cardinal Spada.In the courtyard you can admire the well-known Borromini Perspective, a fabulous work of trompe l’oeil consisting of a 9-meter-long corridor that seems much longer thanks to a perspective trick.
The Gallery houses Cardinal Spada’s rich private collection including famous artist such as Carracci, Guido Reni, Tiziano, Domenichino, Tintoretto, Baciccia, Gentileschi, Passarotti, Parmigianino, Guercino.
