Rome's Palazzo Barberini opens restored rooms

Palazzo Barberini rearranges its priceless art collection.

Rome's Palazzo Barberini, home to Italy's national gallery of ancient art, has introduced a new visitor route and rearranged its art collection which contains works by Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Raphael and Titian.

The museum has reopened 10 newly-restored rooms in the northern wing on the piano nobile, six months after the restoration of another 10 rooms in the southern wing of the 17th-century palace.

The new circular exhibition path, along with the freshly restored rooms, will be open to the public from 12 December.

In addition to the gallery's priceless paintings, the palace boasts the Square Staircase by Bernini and the Helicoidal Staircase by Borromini.
