The Palazzo Colonna is in the heart of Rome and home to one of the city's largest private art collections only open on Saturdays.
The Colonna family had many ties to the Catholic church, producing twenty cardinals and one pope Martin V, who used the palace as his main residence from 1420 until his death in 1431.
The gallery was commissioned in the mid-sixteenth century by Cardinal Girolamo I Colonna and his nephew, Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna for their 15th and 16th century art collection.
