Produced under the auspices of the City of Rome, Department of Cultural Affairs, Superintendent of Cultural Heritage.
The Capitoline Museums have recently achieved new prominence thanks to the opening of a new wing designed by Carlo Aymonino and organized around the large Exedra of Marcus Aurelius, providing a new setting for the famous bronze equestrian statue of the emperor. Other attractions include the Horti Romani, with the sculptures and precious ornaments that decorated the large garden villas of imperial Rome, the rooms containing the Castellani Collection, full of Greek and Roman works, the recently reordered coin collection, and the Galleria Lapidaria, a trove of important inscriptions.
Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs.
