The National Gallery of Ancient Art, founded in 1895 by uniting the Corsini and Torlonia Collections, has since 1949 occupied the main and second floors of Palazzo Barberini and collects works from the great masters of Italian and foreign painting from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries. The palace is rich in pictorial decorations: the frescoes of the great hall on the first floor depicting The Triumph of Divine Providence and the decorations of the chapel and the small gallery on the top floor are by Pietro da Cortona. The Triumph of Divine Wisdom in the seventh room is by Andrea Sacchi. Source: turismoroma.it
