Capitoline Museums at Centrale Montemartini information
Housed in a former power station, this fabulous outpost of the Capitoline Museums (Musei Capitolini) boldly juxtaposes classical sculpture against diesel engines and giant furnaces. The collection’s highlights are in the Sala Caldaia , where ancient statuary strike poses around the giant furnace. Beautiful pieces include the Fanciulla Seduta (Seated Girl) and the Musa Polimnia (The Muse Polyhymnia) and there are also some exquisite mosaics.
