It's not everyday that my afternoon involves free reign of an art filled private palazzo. The other day as a benefit of my being a Friend of the American Academy in Rome I got to live out all of my girlhood princess dreams.
The American Academy had organized a lecture and classical concert in the palace and as a special event only open to the Friends of the Academy, an exclusive visit to the palazzo.
I got to wander in rooms filled with Bruegels, visit the private apartments of the stunning 14th century palace, including the ornate, silk cushioned Princess Isabelle Apartment.
Have you joined the Friends of the American Academy in Rome yet?
