The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has joined the ‘Open for you‘ initiative launched by the Touring Club Italiano and is opening the doors of the Palazzo della Farnesina to the public. The first opening is scheduled for Friday 26 November, when it will be possible to visit the main rooms of the Palazzo della Farnesina and the contemporary art collection.
The initiative – created in 2005 with the aim of opening the doors of Italian places of art and culture usually closed to the public or with limited accessibility – is made possible thanks to the contribution of volunteers from the Touring Club Italiano.
The free tour will last approximately 90 minutes and will include, starting from the Atrio d’Onore, various routes on the first, second, fourth, fifth and mezzanine floors, which the visitor can select from the different tours available.
In this way, visitors will be able to discover the historical heart of the Farnesina Collection dedicated, among other things, to Informal Art, the Forma 1 Group, Optical and Programmed Art, Arte Povera, Transavantgarde, and the San Lorenzo Group. They will also be able to visit the sections devoted to the most recent research and to the generations that have worked in recent decades, as well as to photography, graphics, illustration and Street Art.
Access will only be granted to persons holding a Green Pass – COVID-19 Green Certification and it will be necessary to wear a mask and observe social distancing throughout the tour. Access will be granted after checking an identity document.
