The exhibition will be on display at the Palazzo Farnese until April 27th 2011.

Admission costs EUR12 (GBP10.30) from Monday to Friday and EUR15 at weekends.

The building is open from 09:00 to 19:00 local time on Monday and Wednesday and 09:00 to 21:00 from Thursday to Sunday. It is closed on Tuesday. features a list of 5 star hotels in Rome that could appeal to art enthusiasts, with the website recommending accommodation such as the Sheraton Roma Rome.
