The Roman National Museum in Rome


The Roman National Museum was founded in 1889 as one of the main cultural centre of a united Italy. In addition to welcoming and exhibiting the works of historical collections donated to the State, and the numerous antiquities that came to the light from the works of adjustment of Rome to its new role as Capital of the Kingdom of Italy, the museum was intended to increase the artistic heritage of the capital.
A century after its birth, the museum has been reorganized into four distinct locations: Diocletian's Baths, Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, Palazzo Altemps and the Crypta Balbi have been added to the Baths.
Inside the Baths of Diocletian the tour route winds from the spa to the cloisters of the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs, integated, on a project by Michelangelo, in the spaces of the monumental complex. The rooms are home to the Museo della Comunicazione scritta dei Romani, the Museo di Protostoria dei Popoli Latini and the Museo Virtuale.
Palazzo Massimo comprises two floors and was built at the end of the 1800s as a seat for the Jesuit College; only in 1995 it was inaugurated as a museum. Today it houses the numismatics and goldsmith's section, an exhibition of ancient art with original Greek works brought to Rome in ancient times, offering a broad overview of the artistic production of the Roman world, from sculptures to frescoes, from mosaics to jewellery.
Palazzo Altemps houses the section of the history of collecting and the Egyptian collection with works from the sanctuaries of oriental deities. All set up according to the 17th century antique taste.
Crypta Balbi is part of a vast complex of buildings that, in turn, stands on the porticoes courtyard adjoining the Balbo theatre. Inaugurated in 2001, it hosts the remains of archaeological excavations conducted since 1981, enhancing the ancient remains found. A second section illustrates the life and transformations of the city between the fifth and tenth centuries, offering an overview of the changes in Rome.
