Let’s visit Villa Farnesina, one of the noblest and most harmonious building of the Renaissance. Famous for its frescoes, it was the residence of the rich banker Agostino Chigi, great patron of art of his time and great client of Raphael, who painted here the marvellous “Galatea”.
Extending the tour, it would be also interesting to visit the Chigi Chapel, another Raphael’s work, where Agostino Chigi was buried.
