The collections of the Corsini family came to form during the seventeenth century with Cardinal Neri Corsini. Later, works were added by the branch of the family already established in Rome, thanks to direct purchases of Pope Clement XII. The family, in fact, received many gifts due to its preeminent social position gained by its new status. In 1883, the building was sold to the State, to which were donated the collections. It has only recently been possible to reconstruct the Corsini Gallery, as an autonomous entity, bringing back together most of the original materials to its historic setting. The gallery features paintings from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, predominantly artists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (including Brother Angelico, Rubens, and Luca Giordano), ancient and modern sculptures (the latter mostly from the Torlonia collection), bronzes and eighteenth century furniture. The Roman, Neapolitan and Bolognese schools are well represented, particularly from the seventeenth century, with important groups of "bamboccianti" and artists specializing in landscapes.
