Immerse yourself in a timeless experience and be swept away by the magnificent Baroque harmonies of Antonio
Vivaldi "The Four Seasons" performed in an enchanting atmosphere at the sumptuous Palazzo Carpegna, in the
beating heart of Rome, in close proximity to the Trevi Fountain. Built in the 17th century during the Baroque era, this
architectural jewel boasts the signature of the world famous Borromini, whose unique oval ramp and sumptuous
entrance portal, richly decorated with exquisite stucco and an elegant portico on the ground floor, can still be admired.
But it is not only a visual wonder, but a place of significant cultural importance, housing the illustrious Accademia
Nazionale di San Luca, with its collections of extraordinary works of art gracing the halls and galleries. The hall in which
Vivaldi's notes will resound gives an evocative and enchanting atmosphere, transporting you to a bygone era and
amplifying the beauty of this extraordinary experience.
To take part in this beautiful experience, all you have to do is get off at the Metro A stop "Barberini" and reach Piazza
dell'Accademia di San Luca 77 in just a few minutes, or get off at the "Tritone" stop of the following Buses 52, 53, 61, 63,
71, 80, 85, 119, 160, 492, 630, behind which is your destination.

Palazzo Carpegna

Palazzo Carpegna was built between the end of the sixteenth century and the first half of the seventeenth century by a pupil of Giacomo Della Porta . The original owners of the building were the Vaini family from Imola. Around 1630 the building was purchased by Count Ambrogio of Carpegna ( 1602 - 1643 ), who commissioned Francesco Borromini to carry out important expansion and renovation works. Upon his death, the palace was inherited by his brother, Cardinal Ulderico Carpegna , who continued to implement the project, albeit downsized. The Carpegna family remained owners until 1731 , the year of the death of Ulderico, the last prince of Scavolino, who appointed his nephew, Marquis Emilio Orsini de' Cavalieri Sannesi, as his heir. The latter commissioned the architect Francesco Ferrari to complete and adapt the structure in the period from 1732 to 1736 . In the following centuries it was adapted and transformed into a rental building; in this period of time, until 1882 , dozens of changes of ownership occurred; among the most important families are those of Patrizi Naro and Colligola Monthioni. The last family to live there was that of Luigi Pianciani . It subsequently housed a religious institute inside and was then repurposed as an office building.

The most recent interventions date back to 1933 , the year in which the renovation works began, carried out by the architects Gustavo Giovannoni and Arnaldo Foschini . The interventions were aimed at setting up and adapting the building as the seat of the National Academy of San Luca and art gallery of its collections, inaugurated on 24 April 1934 .

Between September 2014 and March 2015 , Borromini 's frieze , depicting the face of Medusa , was restored by the Istituto Superiore per la Conservazione ed il Restauro (ISCR) .
