Aurora's casino in Rome


In Palazzo Pallavicini Rospigliosi, on top of the Quirinal Hill, It hides an elegant Casino. Built by Vasanzio for Scipione Borghese, It is a veritable treasure chest of art: from the ancient statues guardians of the garden, the reliefs set into the facade, the frescoes inside. Great artists we will have come and gone: Paul Brill, Passignano, Giovanni Baglione, Orazio Gentileschi, Agostino Tassi and, sweet at the bottom, Guido Reni, which makes this casino affrescandovi the wonderful Aurora. There are many stories that are woven in the art of these great characters and many riches to be discovered in a small and virtually unknown place, but so beautiful to let anyone visit him breathless. CAUTION: It opens to the public only on the first day of the month!
