The new National Museum of Rome housed at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme: the archaeological museum of Rome, containing extraordinary works, examples of late Republican and Imperial figurative culture. English edition.
[Palazzo Massimo alle Terme / National Museum of Rome] Twenty years of study for the critical examination of the materials and their reordering, restoration of the immense artistic heritage, and recovery of the building destined to contain it: this is the new National Museum of Rome at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. One century after its founding, the institution has now been organized with the task of representing, through original works and documents, the formation and the development of ancient Rome in all its aspects: artistic culture, public and private life, religion, economics, urban planning and forms of extraurban settlement, coins.
The guide, with clear, thorough texts and fine illustrations, reflecting the organization of the exhibition area, analytically explores the works on display; first of all, those produced between the end of the Republican era and the late Imperial era; then the coins and goldsmithery, with particular attention to the figurative arts, also with the aim of illustrating the political and economic context of reference and its historical evolution.
