Description

The Roman National Museum was acquired by the state in 1981. The first floor houses sculptures made by roman artists, inspired by greek-Hellenistic culture. The most significant pieces among them are: il Generale di Tivoli (the Tivolan General), La Fanciulla di Anzio (young girl from Anzio), and Efebo, all found during the Subiaco excavations; and Afrodite (Aphrodite) found at Villa Adriana. On the second floor there is an extensive display of decorative architecture taken from various building complexes such as the Villa di Livia.Here you'll also find the very interesting mummy of Grottarossa, the only existing example of mummification from Roman times.
