“Amazing temporary exhibition of JAGO, but the permanent part very good too”
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...more

I went in this little museum one day midweek. A museum immersed in Villa Borghese Gardens. One of the temporary exhibition was by JAGO a young Italian sculptor, we were shocked for him sculptures. Disturbing, exciting, beautiful!

This is a small museum, open since 2006, by the means of Carlo Belotti, and his very personal collection is the permanent part. A very good supplement to other museums and for people used to go to art-museums. The temporary exhibition of JAGO, the new...More

The point of the simplicity is lost on those looking for a circus. Come enjoy the elbow room. Drop your shoulders, step back and enjoy the space.

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.

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
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
