The Galleria Borghese museum houses one of the most beautiful collections of artworks in Europe, including ancient mosaics, bas-reliefs, sculptures and paintings dating from the 15th to the 18th century. The collection, started by Cardinal Scipione Caffarelli Borghese at the beginning of the 17th century, preserves masterpieces by Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini, Raffaello Sanzio, Tiziano, Correggio, Caravaggio and famous sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Antonio Canova.
Also near Ada Home, located precisely between Via Salaria and Via Nomentana is the Coppedè Quarter, composed of eighteen palaces and twenty-seven buildings. This district has become famous for its eclectic architectural style in which the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles blend perfectly, with references to Greek, Gothic, Baroque and medieval art. The entrance to the district is bounded by an arch that joins the Ambassadors’ palaces and from which hangs a large wrought iron chandelier. The arch was designed by Gino Coppedè, the multifaceted architect from whom the area takes its name. The Fountain of Frogs, built in 1924 and located in the center of Piazza Mincio, is so called because of the numerous stone frogs that make it an ornament. The installation is also known for the bathroom that the Beatles are said to have made there after a concert held in 1965 at the Piper, a famous Roman disco in the immediate vicinity of the district. Among the buildings, the most important are: the Palazzina del Ragno, which follows the AssyrianBabylonian style and recognizable by the large spider on the facade; the Villino delle Fate, famous for its asymmetrical structure and the variety of materials it is made of, including marble, brick, travertine, terracotta and glass. Due to its architectural peculiarities, the Coppedè Quarter was chosen by Italian director Dario Argento as the setting for some parts of his films Inferno and L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo.
