Centrale Montemartini information
Antiquity meets Fritz Lang's Metropolis at the striking outpost of the Capitoline Museums. In an ex-power plant, marble Roman deities are juxtaposed with beastly engines and furnaces in a battle of new gods and old. You'll find the collection's highlights in the Sala Caldaia, among them the youthful Fanciulla Seduta and the milky white 1st-century Venus Esquilina, discovered on the Esquiline Hill in 1874.
