In the wonderful Piazza del Campidoglio, redesigned by Michelangelo on the hill that has always been the heart of the civil power of Rome, there are the buildings that house the vast and valuable collection of the Capitoline Museums. It was opened to the public by Pope Clement XII in 1734. Still, the museum was born three centuries before, when Pope Sixtus IV, in 1471, chose to donate his collection of bronze statues to the city (including the famous Capitoline Wolf). For this reason, it is considered the first museum in the world. Created to show people the works of Roman antiquity, found and collected over the centuries by nobles, bishops, and popes of the capital, as well as the extraordinary paintings from the Pinacoteca Capitolina (masterpieces by Caravaggio, Guido Reni, Carracci, Guercino, Domenichino, Pietro da Cortona, Rubens, etc.). It offers a complete route from the enclosed courtyard of the Palace of the Conservatives, which houses the remains of a colossal statue representing Constantine, then climbs to the first floor and admire some of the masterpieces on display here:
- The Capitoline Brutus
- The “Spinario.”
- The She-Wolf symbol of the city
- The magnificent collection of Etruscan halls
- The Castellani
On the second floor of the Palace of the Conservatives is the Pinacoteca. Also, the building halls are real works of art with frescoes and statues from the Renaissance and Baroque Rome. On the ground floor, you can visit the exedra with the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius and admire the ruins of the ancient temples still visible in the structure of the building. From the lapidary galleries, an underground tunnel crosses the Tabularium with beautiful views on the Roman forum. It re-emerges in the New Palace, which houses the Egyptian collection, the famous statue of “Marforio”, The Dying Gaul, the lounges with the busts of philosophers and emperors, and many other wonders of ancient art.
