Be sure not to miss the copy of the Wounded Bitch by the fourth-century BC sculptor Lysippus at this dinky gallery.

This small collection of mostly pre-Roman art was amassed during the first half of the 20th century by Giovanni Barracco. The nobleman’s artistic interests covered the whole gamut of ancient art, as seen in the collection of Assyrian reliefs, Attic vases, Egyptian sphinxes and Babylonian stone lions, as well as Roman and Etruscan exhibits and Greek sculptures. Don’t miss the copy of the Wounded Bitch by the fourth-century BC sculptor Lysippus, on the second floor.
