Since 1927 it is property of the Italian state.
The interiors feature extraordinary decorations, by the most important artists of the time: Raffaello Sanzio, Giulio Romano, Baldassarre Peruzzi himself, Giovanni Antonio Bazzi (known as The Sodoma). Outstanding examples are the Loggia di Psiche by Raffaello and his school; the Sala di Galatea by Raffaello and Sebastiano del Piombo; the Sala delle Prospettive by Baldassarre Peruzzi.
