Description

The National Gallery of Ancient Art (Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica) houses works by Caravaggio, Raffaello, Tintoretto, and Holbein, among many others. These paintings belong to the Barberini family's massive collection, most of which is scattered all over the world. Baroque architects Maderno, Bernini, and Borromini designed the palace. Two grand staircases lead to the main floor: the larger one was designed by Bernini and the smaller, oval construction by Borromini. On the first floor, the large ceiling of the Salone (main hall) was covered in frescoed by Piertro da Cortona and depicts the triumph of Pope Urban VIII. You'll notice the Bernini family symbol, a bee, painted or sculpted almost everywhere in the building.
