Capitoline Museums

Do you want to see the first sculptured portrait of a living person?

Rome plays with an advantage. This ancient capital of Rome has so often seen new artistic currents appear, and has accumulated so many artistic testimonies from so many different currents and times, that it is on a different level to others It is said there is no need to go to a museum in Rome, because the city itself is already an exhibition, not only from the Roman and Renaissance eras but also from Medieval, Baroque, Romantic periods and XIX century currents. They all left the city full of buildings, squares, monuments and other constructions that make Rome a museum of humanity. However, the city also wanted to open its own galleries and the Capitoline Museums, in the Piazza del Campidoglio are two buildings with a unique collection. This creation of the two museums began when Pope Sixtus XIV donated a collection of bronze statues in 1491, creating one of the oldest museums in the world. These are the Conservatori Palace and the Nuovo Palace. There will not be sufficient time to see all the works of art but you must visit the work by Titian, Caravaggio, Rubens, Tintoretto as well as the sculpture of the Capitoline wolf, mother of Romulus and Remus and founder of the city .
