Villa Romana

Max Klinger, exponent of first the Berlin then the Vienna Secession, purchased the 40-room neoclassical villa with its 15 thousand square metres of gardens, formerly the property of the noble Gigliucci family, on Via Senese in 1905. Klinger acquired it for the purpose of offering workspace to young artists, for whom an annual prize was instituted and is still awarded today. The Kunsthistorisches Institut is the leading German centre for the study of the history of Italian art, with a photo library of Italian art and a library stocking more than 360 thousand volumes.
