5 buildings that matter in art in Rome

1) Palazzo Sacchetti

A rare example of a palace that’s still inhabited by the noble family after which it’s named – hence the difficulty in visiting. The interior is frescoed by renowned Renaissance artists such as Francesco Salviati. The garden features a Roman nymphaeum, which would have reached the Tiber. The structure also makes an appearance in Paolo Sorrentino’s Oscar-winning The Great Beauty. The palazzo can be visited on request.
