 Italy Rome Museo di Roma

EnglishItalian

The Museum of Rome possesses a wide variety of articles relating to the history of the city from the Middle Ages to the first half of the 20th century. They bear witness to the transformations that occurred geographically and in the various aspects of cultural life in the Capital. Furniture production, carriages and sedan chairs, architecture and urban features, mosaics and frescoes saved from demolition, medieval ceramics, woodcuts for fabrics of the 18th and 19th centuries, clothing and tapestries from those periods all contribute to the collection.
The collection of paintings in noteworthy: alongside the works of high artistic value such as those of Andrea Sacchi, Pierre Subleyras, Pier Leone Ghezzi, Marco Benefial and Pompeo Batoni, there are those that have enormous value as documents, painted between the 16th and 18th centuries to celebrate ceremonies and civil as well as religious events.
The sculpture group from the Middle Ages to the 19th century contains busts, models and terracotta studies along with the activity of the most important sculptors working in Rome, such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Francesco Mochi, Alessandro Algardi, Melchiorre Caffą, Bernardino Cametti and others are all represented here.
The Municipal Print Collection is of great value. It consists of drawings and water colours, prints, engravings and old books that recount the history and development of graphic art and its techniques from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
The works are a representation, icongraphically and as documentation, of the topography and history of the city. A collection of rare photographs from the Municipal Photograph Archives relates to the graphics collection and provides a complete picture of Roman photography from the 19th to the first half of the 20th century.
