Capitoline Brutus
Sculpture
4th-3rd century BC
Bronze
cm 69

In 1564 Cardinal Pius da Carpi donated to the museum the magnificent bronze portrait of extraordinary expressive force. The identification of the statue with Junius Brutus, the first Roman consul, represents an astute interpretation of the antiquarian culture. However, this assertion is without any real foundation.

Acquisition data: Cardinal de' Carpi donation (1564)
Inventory: inv. MC1183
