Palazzo Cipolla

Overview

Worldwide exhibitions in the heart of Rome

In the heart of Rome, Palazzo Cipolla was built in the second half of the 19th century. In 1862, Prince Camillo Aldobrandini purchased Palazzo Jacovacci in Via del Corso, owned by the Hospital of San Giacomo. It was demolished and a few years later, Palazzo Cipolla arose, named after Antonio Cipolla, architect for the project.

The building, with Palazzo Sciarra, has been home to the Fondazione di Roma Museum since 1999. With over 1,500 square metres of exhibition area, it has hosted almost 40 temporary exhibitions in collaboration with the world's most prestigious international museums, from the Reina Sofia in Madrid to the Louvre in Paris, from the Palace Museum in Beijing to the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. The artworks on display range from classical to contemporary: it is impossible not to find an exhibition at Palazzo Cipolla that will not leave you speechless. Emphasis is placed on distant cultures, especially those of the Far East, from China to Japan. 

At the end of your visit, just a short distance from Palazzo Cipolla you can see the fascinating Pantheon, with its pierced dome, the iconic Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain, where you can make a wish by throwing a coin into the water.
