Capitoline Museums: Capitoline Museum -

Location and History

The Capitoline Museums are divided into "Palazzo dei Conservatori" and "Palazzo Nuovo" both in Capitol Square. They were founded by Sisto IV in 1471, extended by Pio V and opened to visitors by Clemente XII in 1734


Starting from the courtyard, you can admire the gigantic statue of Oceano. In the rooms on the ground-floor there is the sarcophagus Amendola on which you can see a Roman work of II century representing the fight between Greeks and Galatians. Besides, you can stop to admire the enormous statue of Mars and the equestrian statue of Marco Aurelio transported here from Capitol Square after its restoration. In the "Gabinetto della Venere", on the first floor, you can see the Venere Capitolina that is a marble Roman copy of the hellenistic statue dating back to the III century. In the Emperors' room you can observe 65 busts of Roman Emperors and the Amazzone ferita, a splendid copy of the original statue of Cresila, dated back to the V century B.C. Besides, you can find the Galata Morente which represents a mortally wounded warrior found in the XVI century. It is the Roman copy of the original statue sculptured by pupils from Pergamum school
