PALAZZO BARBERINI

North wing refurbishment

North wing refurbishment

After the opening of the south wing of the noble floor of Palazzo Barberini, which gave a new breath to the permanent collection, it is time also to reorganize the north wing of the palace.
Even if Rooms from n.17 to n.24 will be closed for refurbishment until October 2019, the most important paintings will be moved into other rooms of the museum.
Coinciding with this temporary reduction of the itinerary, the museum management co-curated the exhibition “Wege des Barock. Die Nationalgalerien Barberini Corsini in Rom “, (Baroque Pathways: National Galleries Barberini Corsini in Rome), scheduled from July the 16th to October the 6th 2019 at the Museum Barberini in Potsdam.
Therefore in this period some works will be on loan:

“Narcissus” by Caravaggio;
“Sacred Love and Profane Love” by Giovanni Baglione;
“Holy Family” by Orazio Borgianni;
“Penitent Magdalene” by Simon Vouet;
“Penitent Magdalene” by Guido Reni;
“Venus playing the harp” by Giovanni Lanfranco;
“Et in Arcadia ego” by Guercino.

We apologize for the inconvenience, aware that temporary sacrifices are inevitable in order to meet the expectations of visitors.
At the same time, sending some works from our collection to Potsdam, a place that elected Palazzo Barberini as an architectural model to imitate, will reinforce the key role played by the Barberini Corsini Galleries in the network of museums around the world.
