There is also a live Q&A at the end satisfying all your questions about the Borghese Gallery. Whether you’ve never been abroad or spent every summer in Italy, enjoy this exciting, interactive experience from the comfort of your home.
As a tip for your guide, you can purchase a guest spot on your tour. With the additional proceeds going directly to your guide, it’s a great way to show your appreciation and support.
Gian Lorenzo Bernini
The Baroque period of Renaissance art is notable for its exaggerated splendor and dramatic compositions. There is no better sculptor who captured the voice of this period than Gian Lorenzo Bernini. With just a few simple tools and blocks of stone, Bernini crafted some of the most enduring pieces of Renaissance sculpture. With your guide, you’ll explore some of his most iconic works, and gain a deep understanding of why they are still celebrated to this day.
From one Baroque master to another, you will visit the room dedicated to Caravaggio. On this portion of the tour you will learn unbelievable stories of Caravaggio's life from apprenticeship to an exiled criminal. You will also see the progression of his painting style and the evolution of “chiaroscuro” which creates the incredible lighting present in his work. Your guide will also talk about lesser known parts of Caravaggio's life including the foreshadowing of his fall from grace.
