Museo Boncompagni Ludovisi

Overview

A journey through Italian decorative arts, costume and fashion 

There is a place in Rome where you can retrace the evolution of social trends over the years: the Boncompagni Ludovisi Decorative Arts Museum, dedicated to Italian decorative arts, costume and fashion.

Housed in the delightful Baroque-style Villino Boncompagni Ludovisi villa with Art Nouveau additions, the Museum is located just a few steps away from Via Vittorio Veneto and boasts a generous collection, thanks to private donations, that displays the culture of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The various themed rooms range from the Tapestry Gallery, bursting with lavish Flemish textiles, to the Room of the Cradle of the Princes of Savoy, named after the precious bronze, silver and copper cradle sculpted by Giulio Monteverde. Don’t miss the Salone delle vedute (Hall of Views), where you can admire portraits of Princess Alice Blanceflor Boncompagni Ludovisi De Bildt and her mother, Alessandra Keller, as well as dresses donated by luxury fashion houses in Rome.

Among furniture, furnishings and accessories, the museum guides visitors along a journey through Italian decorum and comfort.
