Overview

The Palazzo della Piccola Farnesina, built in 1523, houses the Barracco museum, formed from a collection of pre-Roman art sculptures, Assyrian bas-reliefs, Attic vases, Egyptian hieroglyphics and exceptional Etruscan and Roman pieces. The collection was put together by Senator Baracco whose statue can be admired in the palazzo's inner courtyard. This is one of Rome's younger museums- the works on display were donated in the early 20th Century.
