  • Absolutely loved it here. It was surreal seeing statues that I’d only seen in books. I went in capitoline museum right at open at 9:30 and so it was very empty which was nice. I had a little trouble finding palazzo Nuovo through the underground path and accidentally left the museum before I saw it. When I realized, the security let me back in so that I could see it
  • Very nice experience. Recommend to visit here. All the statues are magnificent and beautiful. We spend afternoon there and it was very well used time.
  • Very nice museum. Connected with underground passage with opposite side building.
  • Designed by Michelangelo to complete the square he himself redesigned. Obviously the model is the palace of the Conservatives that rises before you. Today it is part of the museum itinerary of the Capitoline Museums, in its small courtyard is arranged the gigantic statue lying of Marforio that, together with the most famous Pasquino and other characters, is one of the so-called "talking statues" of Rome. Not to be missed! @gargio76

  • Pope Paul III wanted to impress Charles V. Roman Emperor, who was expected to arrive at 1538. He asked Michelangelo to build a square and palace that would present the greatness of the city and its splendor. Michelangelo planned a trzoidal square and three palaces surrounding it. The palaces and the square were designed to turn towards the Basilica of St. Peter, which is built and the evolving part of the city and not like the ancient ones where the buildings turned to the forum. The implementation of the project was slow and most of it was not completed until the time of the visit of Charles V. Only a fraction of it ended during Michelangelo's life. The Capitoline Museum lies within this palace and the palace opposite, Palazzo Dei Conservatory and the City Hall is housed in the main palace, Palazzo Senatorio.
