The bronze statues donated by Pope Sixtus IV

The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome.

The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.
