"The Centrale Montemartini: A Thermoelectric Power Plant turned Museum"
Past Live Lecture May 8th 2023 with Livia Galante
Come and Discover:
The Centrale Montemartini is a hidden jewel among the museums of Rome. A former thermoelectric power plant, the Centrale has now been turned into an exceptional museum where two opposed realities, classical and industrial archaeology, blend into a well calibrated play of contrasts.
Next to the old machines of the power plant, in an almost surreal environment, there are ancient roman sculptures and valuable archeological finds, part of the immense Capitoline collection.
