On display at the Capitoline Museums the third installment of the "The Days of Rome" cycle, a major exhibition of ancient Roman art, the golden age of the Roman Empire.
Historical-documentary exhibition on the occasion of the 68th Anniversary of Liberation of Rome.
The exhibition aims to highlight the lively Italian folk tale and show how many of its themes, characters and symbols are still rooted in our imagination.
For the first and possibly only time in history, one hundred original and priceless documents selected among the treasures preserved and cherished by the Vatican Secret Archives for centuries leave the Vatican City walls. And they will do so in order to be housed and displayed in the beautiful halls of the Capitoline Museums in Rome.
The exhibition addresses some of the rites of ancient Rome which have developed into today's Carnival: the Saturnalia, the Bacchanalia and, more generally, the festivals celebrated by the Romans.
