The Farnesina Collection reopens to the public on 2 October.
On the occasion of the event “Open House Roma” members of the public will be able to visit the main areas of the Palazzo della Farnesina, which houses the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its contemporary art collection. There will be four shifts, respectively at 10.00, 11.00, 12.00 and 15.00.
The visit – free of charge – will last approximately one hour and thirty minutes. It will include the Hall of Honour on the mezzanine floor and the public areas on the first floor. Visitors will see the historic core of the Farnesina Collection, dedicated, among other things, to Informal Art, Gruppo Forma 1, Optical and Programmed Art, Arte Povera, Transavanguardia and the San Lorenzo Group. The new gallery dedicated to graphics, illustration and street art will also be part of the visit.
Reservation can be made from 18 to 29 September on the Open House Roma website at this link.
The tour will be guided by volunteers from Open House and the Italian Touring Club.
We remind you that, to visit the Farnesina Building you will need to show your Green Pass, wear a mask and respect social distancing throughout the tour. Access will be allowed after showing valid ID and scanning the QRpass (QR-code) on the poster at the entrance. For further information, please visit the Open House event website.
Finally, visits to the Farnesina Collection will resume in November, as part of the Touring Club’s “Aperti per Voi” programme, with the collaboration of TCI volunteers who have been making it possible to admire the Farnesina Collection masterpieces since 2016.
