Il Museo nazionale di Palazzo Venezia is a museum in Rome, housed in the palazzo of the same name. Belonging to MIBACT from December 2014, it is (along with the Library of archeology and art history) one of the 43 museums of the Polo Museale del Lazio. The main entrance is found on via del Plebiscito.

Collection[edit]

The museum houses paintings by artists such as Carlo Maratta, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Guido Reni, Pisanello, Benozzo Gozzoli, Beato Angelico, Giorgione, and Giotto, as well as sculptures, terracotta, gold and silver works, textiles, seals, medals, glass, tapestries, and enamels.[2] The museum also contains approximately 3,000 works from the Wurts Collection, which was formed by George Washington Wurts and Henrietta Tower and bequeathed to the Italian state on her death in 1933.
