Photographs and Video

Pictures without flash are permitted. Video footage is prohibited both inside and outside of the Villa Farnesina, even during special openings. However, for reasons of personal study which are not linked to the production of material for public disclosure – such as publications, various objects illustrating the entities inside the Villa, or television programs – the Academy, at its discretion, may permit the student to take a limited amount of footage. In order to request permission for this, the student must submit a letter, clearly stating their particular motives for study, addressed to the President of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei – Via Lungara 10-00165 Rome. The applicant should also deliver a copy of their study material/project to the Academy. For photographs and video footage which contribute to the professional image of the Villa, it is necessary to request specific authorization from the Academy, who will examine the request, and upon accepting it, will activate the appropriate proceedings in accordance with current legislation.
