It was built in 1512 for Cardinal Domenico Riario. In 1736 the palazzo was rebuilt for Cardinal Neri Corsini.
Today it houses part of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica and is the seat of the Italian Academy of Sciences.
It served as accommodation for many famous people. Among them are Bramante, Michelangelo and Queen Christine of Sweden, who died here in 1689. Her room of death is in the Galleria, and an inscription bears her saying “I was born free, I have lived free, I will die freed”.
