A series of restoration projects was initiated in the 1990s in both the park and buildings and once the upcoming restoration of the Theatre and Moorish Conservatory have been completed, Villa Torlonia will have been returned to its original splendor. The main attractions of the site are the Casino Nobile (the home of the Villa Museum and the collection of works by the Roman School), the Casino dei Principi (used for exhibitions and the home of the Roman School Archive), and the Museum of the Casina delle Civette.

The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art is today a museum with two hearts. The first is the Museum's connection to the past. Its cultural history is intertwined with that of the Italian State which achieved complete political unity only in 1870 with the establishment of Rome as its capital. The first half of the 19th Century was a period of great political and cultural ferment and this is the foundation upon which the Museum stands. On the other hand the Museum, since its founding in 1883, has always looked to the present. It's mission being to represent "living" art..

Villa Borghese garden and the Galleria Borghese museum: a large landscape garden in the naturalistic English manner, built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, developing sketches by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V, who used it as a villa suburbana, a party villa, at the edge of Rome, and to house his art collection. The large landscape park contains several villas. The Spanish Steps lead up to this park, and there is another entrance at the Porte del Popolo by Piazza del Popolo. The Pincio (the Pincian Hill of ancient Rome), in the south part of the park, offers one of the greatest views over Rome. The Galleria Borghese is housed in the Villa itself and houses a substantial part of the Borghese collection of sculptures and antiquities by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Antonio Canova and paintings by Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio..
