Since the first time I saw a picture of the marble statue The **bleep** of Prosperina (Persephone) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, I knew that I had to make a trip to the Galleria Borghese on my next trip to Rome. The museum is situated in the Borghese Gardens, a nice peaceful green space in the city center of Rome. The museum holds many treasures from the Borghese collection of paintings and sculptures, started by Cardinal Scipione Borghese. When you walk in, the overwhelming feeling smacks you – what do you look at first? Vivid frescos painted on the ceilings and walls, brilliant marble statues, splendid colorful mosaics laid into the floor. It’s sensory overload, but it’s fantastic. Every room continues this way. We made our way back to the room with my favorite statue and it did not disappoint. The carving of this mythical statue is so masterful, your pictures will look like photographs. It is really amazing that man can make a block of marble look like flesh. You won’t miss the Caravaggio paintings on the way out either.
