Description

The Palazzo Farnese in Rome was built around 1514 by architect Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane. It is located near Campo dei Fiori and is considered a noteworthy example of the Italian Renaissance. It was once the home of the famous Farnese family and contained valuable collections of art, some of which are now kept in the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. The cornice of the roman building is the work of Michelangelo, while the rear façade was designed by Giacomo della Porta. To build the palace, as often happened at the time, the materials were recovered from the ancient imperial palaces and roman ruins. After the Farnese family, the beautiful residence was occupied by the Bourbon family and since 1910 has been home to the French Embassy.
