According to a recent disposal by the newly elected President Sergio Mattarella, the Quirinal Palace will be soon open to visitors on a regular base like a museum. The building, which dates back to the end of ‘500, will disclose in this way its precious treasures accumulated over four centuries of history as the abode of Popes, kings and Presidents of the Italian Republic since 1946. They consist of rare books, tapestries, furnitures, paintings, sculptures, porcelain services, historic carriages, chandeliers, as well as gardens and greenhouses for what concerns the outer premises.
The Quirinal Palace is till today the widest residence of a head of state, and the sixth largest building in the world, given its 1,200 rooms on a surface of more than 110,000 m².
As long as the new arrangements become effective to make it accessibile to public, the Quirinal Palace is currently open from 8:30 am to 12 pm on Sunsays only. For the remaining part of 2015, it will be closed on 5 April – 31 May – 1 November – 20, 27 December and during summer time (28 June – 6 September).
