Rome's Palazzo Farnese (Farnese Palace) is considered to be one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces in Italy's historic city of Rome. Now housing the French Embassy, Michelangelo was heavily involved with its creation almost 500 years ago.
The Galleria Carracci (Carracci Gallery) in the Palazzo Farnese features a large ceiling with paintings by Annibale Carracci between 1597 and 1604, depicting the loves of the gods in a typical baroque style. The spectacular ceiling paintings in the Palazzo Farnese (Farnese Palace) are second only to Michelangelo's ceiling in the Sistine Chapel.
