Palazzo Massimo is a formidable chest of statues, frescoes, mosaics and much more. The best and most unique antiquities in Rome’s history are preserved right inside of this structure.
During the talk we will focus on some of the most iconic statues of the collection such as, the Boxer, the statue of Augustus as Pontifex Maximus, Lancellotti’s Disc Thrower, the Maiden of Anzio, the Sleeping Hermaphrodite. But, what makes this Museum so special, are the beautiful frescoes and mosaics that once decorated wealthy roman residences.
Outstanding is the Painted Garden from the summer dining room of the suburban Villa of Livia.
