FOR THE OPENING NIGHT
A tour in the wonderful Palazzo Colonna will guide you to the discovery of one of the oldest patrician residences in Rome. Its construction began in the fourteenth century by the Colonna family, who still resides there since eight centuries. The construction of the various wings of Palazzo Colonna lasted for five centuries. This has led to the overlapping of different architectural styles, interiors and exteriors, which characterize and reflect the different periods. Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Antonio del Grande, Carlo Fontana, Pinturicchio, Guido Reni, Tintoretto, Salvator Rosa, Bronzino, Guercino, Veronese, Vanvitelli and many others, all lent their expertise.
