Two hours of joy with Caravaggio, Bernini and Raphael
A unique gem, filled up with masterpieces in the heart of Rome : the Borghese Gallery, where we will spend two hours getting to know how Caravaggio could use his brush in a way that changed the history of painting, to admire all the Bernini "talking statues", to enjoy Titian, Raphael, Rubens and many others. I will bring to life for you all the pieces of art which are part of this outstanding art collection.
