Historic Building

Palazzo Pamphilj was built between 1644 and 1650. Since 1920 the palace has housed the Brazilian Embassy in Italy, and in 1964 it became the property of the Federative Republic of Brazil.

The Gallery vault is decorated by painter Pietro da Cortona. His secular fresco cycle depicts scenes from the life of Aeneas as recounted by Virgil, the legendary founder of Rome, from whom the Pamphili claimed to be descended.
