- The collection was created by Count Primoli, the last descendant of the Primoli family. It includes portraits of Napoleon, and displays some of his personal items, such as the Indian scarf he wore during exile on St Helena. Besides uniforms and family portraits, there are plaster studies by Canova who immortalised Napoleon's sister, Pauline, in the famous statue on display in the Galleria Borghese. This museum includes not only mementos of the general but also objects belonging to his family who lived in Rome - his mother, Letizia, and his sister, Pauline, who married Prince Camillo Borghese.
