For the first time ever, the art works in the Farnesina Collection and the installations of the Farnesina Design Collection are to be seen outside the building that has housed Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs – the country’s diplomatic heart – since 1959. The works will be shown in a special exhibition, “Farnesina Palace and its Collections”, promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the General Department for the Promotion of the Country System.
