    Le Discobole

    In italian : Museo Nazionale Romano

    Home to the largest archaeological collection in the world, the National Roman Museum is distributed over four sites, the largest of which is the Palazzo Massimo alle Terme.

    In the latter are preserved frescoes of Roman villas, replaced in their original configuration, as the Villa Farnesina or the House of Livia.Beautiful sculptures and statues are housed there, like a discus thrower, a hermaphrodite or two Greek bronze statues.The ground floor is dedicated to sculptures dating from antiquity to the republic and the Julio-Claudian dynasty.

    The works of the first floor go from to the imperial period until late antiquity, they consist mainly of statues and some sarcophagi.

    On the second floor are reconstructed rooms of Roman villas with frescoes and mosaics.

    In the basement is preserved the largest numismatic collection in Italy, which belonged to King Vittorio Emanuele III of Savoy.

    The Baths of Diocletian are also home to many works, including sarcophagi, stelae and a wide epigraphic section, and a section on prehistory and the peoples of the region.

    Part of the museum is devoted to prehistoric peoples of the region of Rome and Italy.

    The design of its large cloister is attributed to Michelangelo.

    In one of the ancient antique halls, a family tomb and a columbarium were installed.

    Altemps Palace houses important ancient sculptures from the collections of large families like the Ludovisi, Mattei and the Altemps.

    The Crypta Baldi, the smallest of the four sites, holds a medieval collection.It is of particular interest for the archaeological strata of Rome on the site of the crypt itself.
