Tour extended description
- A Michelangelo’s marvelous architecture
Three wonderful buildings surrounding a central square with a starry path on the floor and an imposing gilded bronze ancient statue in the center. A monumental staircase connecting the square to the world down below. Michelangelo was a great sculptor and painter, but his works as architect are as impressive as the Sistine Chapel. He design Piazza del Campidoglio about 500 years ago and today it still shocks you for his simple perfection.
- The oldest ancient Roman museum of the world: the Conservatori’s Palace and Marcus Aurelius
A gilded bronze emperor Marcus Aurelius rides his horse to lead his army to the victory. A 40 feet high colossus of Constatine thinks about a religious change that will affect world history forever. The She-Wolf nurses Romulus and Remus, whose name is writte on the Fasti Capitolini, the most amazing years-list of the world. The bronze Hercules holds the club while looking at the marble Hercules that fight the Hydra. A Boy tryies to pull a thorn out of his foot, while a charismatic Brutus thinks of ending the Roman Monarchy. A consul sacrifices a bull ouside the Temple of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, whose foundations are still there to shok you. The origin of the Capitoline Museums dates back to 1471 (and this is incredible in itself !) but its collections dates back to the birth of Rome.
- The Tabularium and a great view on the Roman Forum
Enter the main City Archive of ancient Rome and look for a treaty of peace, a juridical verdict, a topographycal map, the description of Cesar’s wars in Gallia or the speech Cicero said to stop Catilina’s conspiracy. The Tabularium was a great collection of documents in the past and it still is today: you can find here ancient funerary inscriptions, board games, votive offerings, descriptions of political careers, mile-stones and many other amazing evidences of the Roman daily life. At the end, take panoramic pictures of the Ancient Roman Forum from the best point of view.
- Thoudands of marble artworks: the New Palace
Love and Death in the same galleries? Here it’s possible. Fall in love with the most beautiful goddess of Rome: the Capitoline Venus. One hand covers her breast while the other hand hides the pubic region. The most erotic but modest model of the world! And then cry the upcoming death of the Dying Gaul: his face looking down while he feels life abandoning his body, like the blood coming out from the wound on his chest. Impossible to list here all the hundreds of amazing ancient marble statues collected in the New Palace. You have to come to Rome and see them!
