🪞The Palazzo Barberini in Rome is so photogenic

📖Traditional information about the Barberini Palace is easy to find. ❄️As a local guide in Rome, let me share some trivia about the Barberini Palace. 1⃣️When you walk through the main gate🚪of the Barberini Palace, you might miss a small but exquisite detail: the statues of the ancient Roman war god Mars and Flora in front of the door. These statues represent the contrast between war and peace, military and nature, and are a symbolic arrangement. 2⃣️This palace was once the private residence of the Barberini family. In the 17th century, the building was purchased by Pope Urban VIII💰and became the Papal Palace. Interestingly, the architect of the Barberini Palace was Bernini, who also designed the dome of St. Peter's Basilica🆙. This makes the palace have an interesting connection with other important buildings in Rome. 3⃣️There was a particularly notable period in the history of the Barberini Palace when it was used as the French Embassy in Italy🇮🇹. During the short-lived Roman Republic in 1849, the French government purchased the palace and converted it into an embassy. During this period, the palace witnessed some political and historical changes, adding a unique historical significance to the building. 4⃣️The Barberini Palace is also famous for its magnificent halls, among which the most eye-catching is the room called "Hall", decorated with exquisite murals🖼️and gorgeous ceilings. This palace is not just a building, but a confluence of art and history. 5⃣️There is a room called "Heliocaminus" (Sun Furnace), named for its special design. This room is designed as an ellipse, and on the summer solstice each year, the sun's rays will pass through the top window of the room🪟, directly hitting a copper wire mesh on the floor.
