The National Academy of San Luca currently has its headquarters in Palazzo Carpegna, of which Francesco Borromini set up, important works of transformation and expansion of the ancient sixteenth century nucleus. The Borrominian work is still almost complete: the elegant portico located on the ground floor, the portal with a rich frieze decorated with stuccoes, and the helicoidal ramp leading from the entrance to the upper floors. The present architectural appearance of the building is a consequence of the radical intervention undertaken between 1933 and 1934 under the direction of Gustavo Giovannoni and Arnaldo Foschini, to adapt the building to the seat of the Academy.
