palazzo nuovo gallery

The Gallery is lined with a row of sculptures of various types from different periods arranged according to strictly ornamental criteria. Many statues are Roman copies of original Greek masterpieces, now lost.

 

More than 100 sculptures are on display at the gallery: they are different in character, size, and location. Sculptures of gods and figures from ancient mythology, works of art of extraordinary formal polish and decorative objects collected with an antiquarian taste, offer a unique overview of figurative art, handed down to us from antiquity.

 

Capitoline Museum, Rome.
