The Farnese family was an influential family in Renaissance Italy, former owners of the Farnese Collection.

Its most important members include Pope Paul III and the Dukes of Parma.

Several important architectural works and antiquities are associated with the Farnese family, either through construction or acquisition, known as the Farnese collection, including the Farnese Marbles. These include the Palazzo Farnese in Rome and the Villa Farnese in Caprarola.
