The exhibition is divided  into six main sections. The romantic and the mythic vision. The Caffarellis

and the Prussians with their properties. The proclamation of Roma Capitale and the new task of the Capitol. The activity of the “Governatorato”. The archaeological research. Trough the archivial works and the historical works is narrated the most recent history of this part of the Capitol, mostly unknown, and a particular section is dedicated to the recent archaeological finds which has allowed to rebuild the ancient decoration of “ Giove Capitolino”.
