About

The Fondazione Torlonia was founded in 2014 by Prince Alessandro Torlonia with the express aim of preserving and promoting the Torlonia Collection – among the most important collections of ancient marble sculptures in the world – and Villa Albani Torlonia, home to the collection of antiquities of Cardinal Alessandro Albani, and one of the highest expressions of that particular antiquarian taste which came to the fore in mid-18th-century Rome. Together they constitute a “cultural heritage of humanity, as well as of the family” to be handed down to future generations.
