The Accademia Nazionale di San Luca is a free museum located on the third floor of Palazzo Carpegna, just around the corner from the Trevi Fountain.
The Accademia di San Luca was an association of artists, sculptors and architects, founded in the 17th century and named for Saint Luke, the patron saint of the Roman painter's guild.
Today the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca holds around 500 portraits and some important artworks and sculptures by Bernini, Raphael, Rubens, Guido Reni and Canova. The pieces on show are only a small percentage of the academy's collection.
