Yesterday I visited villa Farnesina. As it is well known, it used to be Agostino Chigi and Francesca Ordeaschi's suburban villa, a place for hedonistic yet cultivated leisure.
Accademia dei Lincei does its best to keep this spirit alive: there is a little "giardino all'italiana" with targets on every plant, there are fountains. All is clean and lovely.
Inside, the lights make the frescoes more enjoyable, which is not a common thing.
I didn't need a guide, but I appreciated the exhibition at the first floor on Giovanni da Udine's garlands. There is even a tiny, but well furnished, bookshop.
This place has become one of my favourites in Rome.
