Centrale Montemartini Museum Tickets, Rome

  • City Rome

Visit Rome's first municipal electric plant, converted into a museum in 1997.

Overview

The polished turbines and archaic engines of Rome's first municipal electric plant, which opened in 1912, make for fascinating modern sculpture, especially when set against the ancient sculpture now on display here -- 400 antique marble and bronze works from the rich collection of the Capitoline Museums.

This abandoned factory was converted into a museum in 1997 during the restructuring of the Capitoline Museum complex. At that time, the exhibition The Machines and the Gods was created to display side by side two diametrically opposed worlds, those of classical art and of industrial archeology.

In an atmospheric game of contrasts, the old machinery of electricity production is the backdrop for masterpieces of ancient sculpture arranged in four interconnecting galleries: the Atrium, the Columned Hall, the Machine Hall and the Boiler Room. The display reconstructs some of the great monumental complexes of Ancient Rome and illustrates the development of the city from the Republican era to the late imperial age.

Centrale Montemartini is also used to showcase the Capitoline Museum's most recent acquisitions, making repeated visits to this fascinating site a must for anyone with an interest in Ancient Rome.
