Abstract

This article discusses a portrait of the soldier and ecclesiastic, Cardinal Pompeo Colonna (1479-1532), still in the Galleria Colonna in Rome. It re-attributes that painting to the artist Sebastiano del Piombo. It also uses the portrait to highlight the, too often ignored, importance of the baronial families of the city in the History and Art History of sixteenth-century Rome and above all the significant role played in both fields by Cardinal Pompeo himself.
