The Villa Borghese is the third largest garden in Rome and it once served as a party destination for the Borghese Family. Designed by Giovanni Vasanzio for Camillo Borghese to contain his collection of artworks, Galleria Borghese is one of many villas located within the premises of the gardens.

Today, the Galleria only allows 360 visitors at a time according to 2 hour allotments. Given that the Borghese Collection from the Louvre will be returning to its original premises, Disruptor aims to resolve the fundamental problem of the lack of space to consume and to store art.

Also, by utilizing a multi-sensory approach, Disruptor aims to create a conducive gallery experience for the visually impaired.
