For the first time in half a century, a selection of the Roman antiquities amassed by the princes Torlonia in the 19th century goes on display. The exhibition considers the collection in the light of a history of private collecting of antiquities in Rome that goes back to the 15th century. The 96 sculptures here include outstanding examples of busts, reliefs and other statues, among them a charming sculpture of a goat, restored in the 17th century by Gian Lorenzo Bernini; many have been newly conserved. Find out more from the Musei Capitolini website.
