Open day at Farnesina

At the bi-monthly opening of the Farnesina Palace, visitors will have the opportunity to visit, in addition to the permanent modern art collection, a special exhibition on the Italian contribution to the European integration process and a temporary exhibition on contemporary musical instruments.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, located at the Farnesina Palace, opens its doors to the public every two months, so as to allow visitors to join guided tours to its modern art collection.

On 24th March, on the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, a special exhibition called “From Messina to Rome”will be set up in the International Conferences Room, in addition to the permanent contemporary art collection. It will consist of historical documents illustrating the contribution of Italy (and namely of its diplomacy) to the process that started in the Sicilian city in 1955 and led to the signing of the EEC and Euratom Treaties in Rome in 1957.

While visiting the Palace visitors will also have the chance to admire a temporary exhibition of musical instruments created by Michelangelo Lupone, that, given their complexity and uniqueness, represent also real masterpieces.

Visiting tours will be organized from 10 am to 3 pm.
