The Centrale Montemartini is a fine example of the successful reconversion of an industrial archaeological building into a major museum.
Named after Giovanni Montemartini, it was originally the first public plant to produce electricity for Rome and today is the second exhibition centre of the Capitoline Museums. It contains an outstanding collection of classical sculptures which again saw the light of day following excavations undertaken in Rome at the end of the nineteenth century and during the first decades of the twentieth.
