The exhibition depicts more than 150 pieces, including heads, busts and statues from the great museums of Europe. Starting from the portraits in clay that reaches to the large production of works in marble and bronze, dating back to Imperial Rome.
The exhibition "Portraits" is organized into several sections, the first is "From the mask to the portrait" which casts are made on the exposed face of the dead or living characters. The second is called "Egypt, Greece, Rome" and illustrates two modes of representation: a great character and individual character, more realistic. The "Principles and men as a gods" illustrates the ways of assimilation of the image of the emperor. Then he takes on "The pattern of images" which displays the models used statuary (statues Lorica, toga statues, statues of heroic nudity, portraits by shield). In "Rollover" is a gallery of faces of the main characters of Roman History, while the last section "Hairstyles" you will find an overview on fashion of the time.
