Home for the works of contemporary art that the equally generous and passionate collector Carlo Bilotti chose to give to the city of Rome. During the years in which the works were collected he was in contact with, and often friends with, some of the most important artists of our time. Among the donated pieces are a nucleus of works by the superb painter Giorgio de Chirico, supported by works by Gino Severini, Andy Warhol, Larry Rivers and Giacomo Manzù.

A free-to-visit museum containing works mostly by Giorgio de Chirico, among them you can see three masterpieces. But the other paintings are cool too, and there is always a temporary exhibition too.

A so-so permanent collection, but varied and interesting temporary ones when we were there. Admission is free, so it's worth dropping in to see what they have.

I was walking in the park and noticed this museum. I walked over to investigate and it was free entry. It is a really nice small collection and I enjoyed my visit.

One plaque gives you the history of the place - basically a private collection now open to the public. We found it looking for a public toilette, which was adjacent. We decided to go in and, since it was free, also stay. It is a...More

if you like some modern art maybe this is for you, not sure why the benefactor collected what he did, pretty uninspiring. Right now though some brilliant photos of graffiti art, well worth going for that

We went here to hide from the rain as we got free access with the Roma pass. Not much to see and nothing impressive. We basically walked it through.

If you like modern art, this is your place. A small museum, away from the crowds, quiet and well-kept. It's free on a Roma Pass (doesn't even count as one of your two free admissions). A nice break from the crowds, noise, and hucksters of...More

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of
Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for

such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
