VILLA FARNESINA IN ROME AND RAPHAEL FRESCOES

Villa Farnesina, located in Rome (Trastevere), is considered one of the noblest and most harmonious creations of Italian Renaissance. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, it was commissioned by the Sienese banker Agostino Chigi to the architect Baldassarre Peruzzi. The interior is decorated with frescoes by Raphael Sanzio, Sebastiano del Piombo, Giovanni da Udine, Giovanni Bazzi known as il Sodoma, Giulio RomanoGiovan Francesco Penni, and Baldassarre Peruzzi himself.  At the end of the sixteenth century the Villa was purchased by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese from whom it takes its name “Farnesina” to distinguish it from Palazzo Farnese on the other side of the Tiber. The Villa is also used for official representative purposes by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.
