Masterpieces from the Torlonia Collection at the Louvre

The largest private collection of ancient sculptures preserved to date, and restored by Fondazione Torlonia with the support of Bvlgari, is on public view at the Louvre, as the first international stage of a world tour. The exhibition ‘Masterpieces from the Torlonia Collection’ will be on display from June 26 to November 11, 2024 in the Denon Wing of the famous Paris Museum.

A collection of historical collections

Brought together by the Torlonia princely family during the nineteenth century in Rome, the superb collection of marbles was restored to its original splendor only in recent years. The exhibition will not only reveal the emblematic genres of Roman sculpture with its diverse themes and styles, it will also represent “a collection of historical collections”, which crystallizes, in the different phases of its constitution, the very history and cultural process of antiquities collecting in private spaces and beyond.

Bvlgari and Fondazione Torlonia

Bvlgari's support, first for the restoration of a selection of over 100 statues from the collection and now for the exhibition, is the result of an agreement signed with Fondazione Torlonia. This sponsorship is part of a wider commitment to cultural projects and artistic patronage, that has taken shape across numerous initiatives over the years, contributing to preserve Rome’s infinite creative heritage for future generations. Furthermore, it also represents an homage to the Maison’s Greek-Roman roots and to the classic concept of beauty, that Bvlgari pursues through its magnificent creations.
