Museo Nazionale Romano - Terme di Diocleziano

Since 1889, a part of the most impressive bath complex of Rome and of the Roman world, which in ancient times occupied a large area between the present day Via Torino, Via Volturno, Piazza dei Cinquecento, and Via XX Settembre, is home to the section of Roman antiquities. The cloister of the charterhouse of S. Maria degli Angeli, which design is attributed to Michelangelo, has now been fully restored with a careful intervention which allowed the characteristic typology and original finish to be brought to light. The construction of the works of art that occupy the four ambulatories was also redefined on bases that allowed for the optimum use of the sculptures. The exhibits, coming mainly from chance finds in various locations of the urban and suburban area, are placed according to the conventional topographical criteria: around the Servian walls, consular roads, the Tiber River, etc.
The garden facing Piazza dei Cinquecento, which from the beginning included the entrance to the museum, is also the result of a substantial restoration which has brought it back to the aspect it had in the 1950s and which houses epigraphic material, mainly funerary items and a variety of other architectural material. The tombstones mostly date back to the end of the Republican era – the early Imperial era; the altars are related to the first two centuries of the Empire. Sarcophaguses and funerary statues are on display in the entranceway.
