There is some truly interesting art inside a gorgeous building, but also some weird stuff all jumbled together in a way that makes me wonder if it even has a curator.
I'm certainly no expert, but the mix of periods and styles and subjects and disciplines was off-putting to me. I lurched from Cezanne (top) to Modigliani (above) to some Italian portraits from the 19th century, to sculpture, to the dreaded Pre-Raphaelites.
The gallery - not to be confused with the museum of contemporary art - is located in the Villa Borghese (which I have come to learn refers to the entire very, very, very large park.) It's easy to reach by tram if you don't feel like hoofing it. They also have a rather posh outdoor cafe.
At present, there is a Paul Klee exhibit on, but frankly it was small and to my mind, not terribly compellng.
Still, the galleria overall is an interesting change from Rome's otherwise (and natural) emphasis on its ancient glories and Renaissance and Baroque art wonders. It's also off the beaten path so I doubt it is ever crowded.
