On Saturday April 23rd ESN Roma L.U., in collaboration with LUISS, will take you to visit Villa Medici. This is the third visit of the program “Discovering Secret Places series” offered by the International Development Office.

The Discovering Secret Places series are guided tours of places that are usually closed to the public or almost undiscovered by the citizens and tourists of Rome. These exclusive visits show a secret side of Rome, inside private palaces, that preserve great treasures behind their locked doors.
All tours will be guided by Costantino D’Orazio, art historian and author of the bestseller: “The keys to open 99 secret places in Rome”.

A walk through the secret rooms of the Cardinal

Firstly designed by architect Giovanni Lippi, the sumptuous complex is located on the Pincian Hill, next to Trinità dei Monti. 
The palace was acquired in 1576 by Cardinal Ferdinando de’ Medici, who had asked the architect Ammannati to build a villa that could reflect the prestige of the Medici family, in order to house his collection of antique masterpieces. 
Since the early nineteenth century, the villa has been the seat of the French Academy in Rome.
