Not all the possible links are linked yet. There are links to most of the nouns-- lifestyle, European, mistress, Napoleon, heroine, Chief of Police, and the date 1900 of the premiere of Tosca... But several nouns remain unlinked. Wetman 20:40, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Is there more than one Palazzo Farnese? If so, could this article disambiguate? If not, could we move it? RickK 00:28, Nov 16, 2004 (UTC)

Pal. Farnese in Rome; Pal. Farnese in Caprarola, Pal. Farnese in Piacenza. Jcr2 06:36, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Residence of Christina[edit]

Who sanctioned her stay in the palace in 1656? Was it the Pope or the Duke or Parma? --Ghirla-трёп- 22:58, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

"Four wonders of Rome"[edit]

The following text was added, in perfectly good faith. I've moved it here:

"In its time the "Cube of Farnese" was considered one of the four wonders of Rome, along with the "harpsichord of Borghese"[1]."

There were many wonders of Rome, noted from the Middle Ages in Mirabilia Urbis Romae, but never four. Neither is there a special reason to pick out Palazzo Borghese, disguised under this sobriquet. If the imagined list is "Items in Rome with Nicknames", there are more than four. Not a help to the Wikipedia reader. --Wetman 00:35, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I took it from the Italian page as linked. Not living in Rome, I don't know whether the 4-line rhyme quoted in the linked page is familar to Romans; perhaps someone can tell us. Coughinink 12:58, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Views of Palazzo Farnese[edit]

I've been told to wirte a message on this talk about a link I wish to add to the page. The links takes to a website that I am creating with views of Rome from past centuries. Books about Rome and othe useful information. I was linking to the page dedicated to Palazzo Farnese where I added three beatuful prints from the 18° and 19° century and will add more as soon as I have time to scan them. This is the link: http://www.romanbookshelf.com/prints/Farnese%20Palace/Farnese.html. Let me know what you think about it and if you believe it could be a good one to add to Palazzo Farnese's page. Thank you. Oct. 26th, 2007
