Closed: 1 January and 25 December

Special exhibition: "Medardo Rosso"

Reproducing Medardo Rosso in an unexpected, spectacular and extraordinary narrative context, is the reason for the exhibition that the National Roman Museum in Palazzo Altemps intends to carry out in collaboration with the Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Milan and with the support of the Red Museum of Barzio. Curated by Francesco Stocchi and Paola Zatti, the exhibition will be an opportunity to present a diverse and wide selection of works documenting the entire story of the artist, to which Rome has never dedicated a monographic exhibition

Description Palazzo Altemps

In the palace are Renaissance and Baroque sculptures such as the famous Boncompagni-Ludovisi collection, the rich sixteenth century collection of Asdrubale and Ciriaco Mattei and the Altemps collection itself. The latter collection includes 16 statues, that were reacquired by the State, four of which are located under the arches of the courtyard. Among these collections are some very famous works of art, such as the Birth of Venus, part of the Ludovisi Collection, probably dating back to the fifth century BC. When visiting the museum it is also possible to see the Church of Saint Aniceto, built within the palace. The building also holds the recently restructured Goldoni Theatre that functions as a conference center as well.
