Palazzo Farnese Exhibit

The French Embassy will open the Palazzo Farnese as part of its 50th anniversary, from December 2010-April 2011. 150 works of art will be exhibited in this normally difficult to access site. If anyone can share details on how to get tickets, it would be appreciated. The show's website in only in Italian and French, a bit difficult for us who are challenged in those languages.

Reservations are by telephone: 011 39 06 32810.

Once the exhibition opens, there will probably be information in English at Rome's culture and tourism Web site www.060608.it

If you go to the ticket sales site (still in Italian but easy to figure out) you can select the dates for which you want to buy tickets. There is also a call center where you might get an English speaking operator.

(choose the tab for Biglietti)

For a rough translation, you can use Google language tools to provide a translation of a web page. It will usually give you a translation good enough to get you started.

Thanks -- I tried the translation. The French ambassador loves the building, but doesn't offer much on the exhibit itself. I'll look for more next month. As I'll be in Rome in January, this seemed an unusual opportunity to enjoy Michelangelo's architecture and a good art show too.

I doubt that any description in English will give you a list of the 150 works in the exhibition...

The press release is more descriptive than the ambassador's message. Here it is, put through Google Translate:

Again not available in an English version, but Trenitalia have an offer that gets a small reduction on the entry price - for those with a Eurostar AV train ticket with either Rome or Naples as its destination, or their Fidelity Card.

While the discount won't set the world on fire, it's €2 from Mon to Fri, or €3 on the more expensive days (weekends, the day before any public holiday, on the holidays themselves, and during all of the period from Christmas Day to 9th January).... so remember to bring that ticket if you've got one!

www.fsnews.it/cms/v/index.jsp…

Similar price reductions are in any case open to those over 65 (seemingly with no nationality restrictions), and significantly larger ones to under-18s... try typing farnese into the search box here...

http://www.ticketone.it/EN/

The agency charges a booking fee of €1.50 per ticket, after which the prices are...

Ordinary weekdays: Full €13.50 / Discounted €11.50 / Under 18 €6.50

or

Weekends etc etc: Full: €16.50 / Discounted €13.50 / Under 18 €7.50

Seems there are still plenty of spaces available on Christmas Day - but very few indeed on the last day of admission, April 27th!

The website InRomeNow has posted the information in English

inromenow.com/site%20templates/ArtsMuseums.h…

I was lucky enough to visit the Palazzo Farnese this past October, on the regular schedule of twice a week opening to visitors. On this regular schedule admission is free, but reservations are very limited. The highlight is the amazing Carracci ceiling, but I gather that now many more wonderful works of art will be on exhibit.

If you can't get into the exhibit, for some reason, you can get some idea of the magnificence of the ceiling by going to the Piazza Farnese (between the Campo dei Fiori and the Tiber) and just looking up at through the windows to the beautifully lit room.
