Villa Medici Review
The 16th-century Villa Medici is the palatial home of the French Academy of Rome, a cultural center where residents are scholars and artists. Modern and contemporary exhibitions of French artists are the focus. However, the palace itself is a permanent exhibition of mannerist architecture, ancient bas relief, and sculpture. The maze gardens surround a lovely terrace where summertime events include evening music and film series.
