Born in the ancient land of Calabria, which still witnesses rich evidences of the ancient world such as the beautiful ruins of the Hera Lacinia sanctuary at Capo Colonna, and educated in classics by Father Constantine Lopez in his early youth, these two factors deeply shaped Barracco’s cultural interests throughout his long life.
Many friends in his later years remember him reading Greek and Latin classics in their original language.

The elegant 16th-century palace that houses the Barracco collection was built between 1520 and 1523 for the Breton prelate Thomas le Roy, who had come to Rome in 1494 in the retinue of king Charles VIII of France. Le Roy was active in the Roman Curia during the reigns of popes Alexander VI, Julius II, Leo X and Clement VII.
