A multimedia exhibition is inaugurated at the Capitoline Museums which narrates the protagonists and events of the history of ancient Rome in an innovative and exciting way, marked by a series of calendars engraved on marble, the so-called Fasti Capitolini.
These exceptional testimonies, exhibited in the Sala della Lupa, inside the Palazzo dei Conservatori, tell the story of Rome that fills the pages of our school books: the great battles, the conquests, the kings, the emperors and the famous leaders. A long story that goes from the founding of the city in 753 BC, to the end of the Republican age, in 31 BC.
The multimedia exhibition offers the public the tools to recognize those historical elements on the wall that are not expected to be found in the tables on display. The projections take place directly on the marble wall, alternating videomapping, which indicates and underlines the words and phrases in the calendars, with a classic video projection overlapped on the wall itself, transforming it into a screen on which, through images, the episodes are recalled by the names of the protagonists highlighted.
The initiative, promoted by Roma Culture, the Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage, is conceived and curated by the Archaeological and Historical-Artistic Museums Directorate. The organization is curated by Zètema Progetto Cultura.
