The next public opening of the Farnesina Collection and Palace is scheduled for Friday 24 February. The day is part of the Italian Touring Club’s “Aperti per voi” (“Open for You”) initiative, which the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation joined in 2016.
During the day, it will be possible to visit not only the main halls of the building and the thematic sections of the Farnesina Collection, but also the spaces of the Crisis Unit, thus discovering the main activities carried out for the protection of Italian citizens abroad; the “Sala delle Bandiere”, housing the largest collection of international flags of the Italian Public Administration, will also be open to the public.
The event includes several tours:
10 a.m.: Tour of the first floor, where works by 20th century masters are exhibited, and the second floor, dedicated to the art of the 1980s and 1990s.
12 p.m.: Tour of the first floor – works by 20th century masters – and the fourth floor, dedicated to 21st-century research.
3:00 p.m.: Tour of the main reception rooms of the Palace on the first floor, the “Sala delle Bandiere” and the Crisis Unit (in the event of sudden institutional duties, the visit to the Crisis Unit will be replaced with a tour of one of the Collection’s themed galleries).
3:30 p.m.: Tour of the first floor – works by 20th century masters – and the fifth floor, dedicated to the photography and reportage gallery.
