The Basics

Canonica was a sculptor and academic born near Turin in 1869. Much feted by the aristocracy in Italy and Europe for his fine sculptural portraits of royalty and nobility, he was given this small but sumptuous "fortezzuola" villa by the city of Rome, and lived there until his death in 1959. The artist's house is now a museum dedicated to his life and work; visit as part of a Villa Borghese bike or Segway tour that also includes the Galleria Borghese, the Silvano Toti Globe Theatre, the Bioparco zoo, and the Pincio Gardens.

My wife and I ended up getting a private tour with Stefano and Anna. They were so knowledgeable about roman history. The tour of Villa Borghese was awesome because its a part of Rome that I imagine most visitors do not see. Riding through the park and streets of Rome was truly a unique experience. Highly recommend
