Scuderie del Quirinale Roma 2

The Scuderie del Quirinale (meaning The Stables of Quirinale in Italian) is an exhibition gallery in Rome close to The Quirinale Palace, the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic.

The venue was opened in 1999 after its building was renovated after a design by architect Gae Aulenti, and since then it hosts prominent art exhibitions.

Building and site

The palace presents many floor levels: the reception area and all shared services for the public, including a café, a shop, and a library, are housed in the basement and on the ground floor while the temporary exhibition galleries are located on the first and second floors.
