The National Gallery of Ancient Art of Corsini palace is located in the Trastevere area. The collection, formed in the XVIII century, although composed from various sources mostly originating from the Corsini family (above all from the collection of cardinal Lorenzo), is unique in the sense that it is still intact today. It shows clearly the taste of Neri Corsini, nephew of the Pope Clement XII. In 1883 the Palace was sold to the Italian State with its collection, which thus formed the basis of the National Gallery of Ancient Art and only recently has been replaced in its original site. Famous are the St. John the Baptist in the desert, painted (1606) from Michelangelo Merisi called Caravaggio and the St Sebastian cared for by the angels (1602-03) painted from Pieter Paul Rubens.
