You have to see it

First off, if you can, try to be at the tabularium for sunset...the view is magical, especially during the low season when there aren't many visitors.

This is the main museum of the city of Rome. Paintings, bronzes, busts, coins, and archaeological artifacts are only some of what you’ll find here. The Capitoline Museums are found in the Palazzo dei Conservatori and Palazzo Nuovo in the highly-photogenic Piazza del Campidoglio.

In 1471, Pope Sixtus IV donated a large collection of bronzes from the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran including the famous Capitoline Wolf, now a symbol of the city, which was placed in the courtyard of the palace of the Conservatives, making it the world's oldest public museum. The collection grew thanks to the donations of several popes including Pius V and Paul III who wanted to purge the Vatican of its pagan sculptures. The Palazzo Nuovo was added to the museum in 1654.

Must-see

During our second visit to Rome, we visited the most important public museum in the world: the Capitoline. It has amazing rooms full of busts of famous people, paintings, the Capitoline She-Wolf with Romulus and Remus, a statue of Marcus Aurelius and his collection of medals, and the statue of the Dying Gaul. The Dying Gaul especially captured our attention and we stood there, slack-jawed, for what seemed like hours at the courage of this great Celtic warrior meant to symbolize the bravery of the French people.

An essential work

The picture - a teenager sitting on a rock has a thorn in his foot removed, his expression is such that we feel his concentration. The subject is realistic and very careful. Its style has been dated to the III century but it's balanced nature and seriousness of the face are reminiscent of Hellenism that is more typical of the V century. This hodgepodge of features makes an interesting statue for art lovers but dating very difficult. It's been famous throughout the history of art, there are many copies of both antiquity and Renaissance and it's an essential work of the Capitoline Museums.

The capitol

The Capitol is the smallest of the seven hills of Rome. It is distinguished by its large staircase that provides access to a place in the center of which stands the town hall. Capitol also had several features in antiquity: ancient religious center of the city, it enjoyed a strategic position that allowed him to be a natural fortress in the center of the communication channels.

Le capitole

Le Capitole est la plus petite des sept collines de la ville de Rome.
Elle se distingue par son grand escalier qui permet d'accéder à une place au centre de laquelle se trouve la mairie.
Le Capitole avait aussi dans l'Antiquité plusieurs caractéristiques : ancien centre religieux de la cité, il bénéficiait d'une position stratégique qui lui permettait d'être une forteresse naturelle au centre même des voies de communications.

At the Capitol before entering the Roman Forum and of course continue your visit to the Coliseum, you pass several statues. Here are a few: Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor famous (161 to 180) known for his wisdom, his sense of balance and his stoicism (it is one of the global benchmark of humanism). Castor and Pollux, twin brothers from the union of Leda and Zeus, they were primarily responsible for the protection of seamen. Finally, Romulus and Remus who needs no introduction.

Au capitole, avant d'accéder au forum romain et bien sûr de poursuivre votre visite jusqu'au Colisée, vous passerez devant plusieurs statues.
En voici quelques-unes: Marc Aurèle, célèbre empereur romain (de 161 à 180) connu pour sa sagesse, son sens de la conciliation et son stoïcisme (il est l'une des référence mondiale en matière d'humanisme). Castor et Pollux, frêres jumeaux issus de l'union de Léda et de Zeus, ils étaient avant tout chargés de la protection des marins. Enfin, Romulus et Rémus qu'on ne présente plus.

Statues and mummies

There is the symbol of the city, the bronze Lupa Capitolina, long considered one of Etruscan and opened only recently considered by some conservatives as dating from the twelfth century. Probably did not understand the statue of Romulus and Remus, that seem added to the Renaissance.

Des statues et des momies

Il y a le symbole de la ville, la médaille de bronze de la Lupa Capitolina, de longtemps considéré comme une ouvre étrusque et seulement récemment considéré par certains conservateurs comme datant du XIIe siècle. Sans doute ne comprenait pas la statue des jumeaux Romulus et Remus, que semblent été ajoutés à la Renaissance.

In 1471 Pope Sixtus IV to the Roman people solemnly gave some ancient bronze statues hitherto preserved in the Lateran (the She-Wolf, the Spinario, Camillo and the colossal head of Constantine, with globe and hand). The return to the city of the traces of his greatness acquired a symbolic value because higher placement in the Capitol, center of religious life in ancient Rome and home to the civil magistrates citizens from the Middle Ages, after spending one long season left.

En 1471 el papa Sixto IV regaló solemnemente al pueblo romano algunas estatuas antiguas de bronce conservadas hasta entonces en Letrán (la Loba, el Espinario, el Camillo y la cabeza colosal de Constantino, con el globo y la mano). La devolución a la ciudad de las huellas de su grandeza adquiría un mayor valor simbólico gracias a su colocación en el Capitolio, centro de la vida religiosa de la Roma antigua y sede de las magistraturas civiles ciudadanas a partir de la Edad Media, tras permanecer una larga temporada abandonado.

According to Greek mythology, the wolf Luperca Allatt Romulus and Remus. This beautiful bronze statue of one of the most admired in the Capitoline Museums. The expression of the wolf so real as to seem real; it is an Etruscan work of 470 BC, while the images of Romulus and Remus were added subsequently. Legend has it that the daughter of the King of Alba Longa became vestal when his uncle Amulius detronizz his father. The Vestals were forced to chastity and she broke the vow remaining pregnant with twins; his father was Mars. Upon hearing the news Amulio the condann to death and ordered that the twins were thrown into the Tiber; those in charge of the operation had mercy of two children and left them in a basket on the river bank. Here comes the wolf, who heard the complaints of the children approached them adott, allattandoli until the pastor Fausto took care of them. The statue is located in the Apartment of the Conservatives, in a private room at the same.

Secondo la mitologia greca, Luperca è la lupa che allattò Romolo e Remo. Questa bellissima statua di bronzo è una delle più ammirate all'interno dei Musei Capitolini. L'espressione della lupa è così reale da sembrare vera; si tratta di un opera etrusca del 470 a.C., mentre le immagini di Romolo e Remo furono aggiunte posteriormente. La leggenda narra che la figlia de Re di Albalonga si fece vestale quando suo zio Amulio detronizzò suo padre. Le vestali erano obbligate alla castità e lei ruppe il voto restando incinta di due gemelli; il padre era Marte. Appresa la notizia Amulio la condannò a morte e ordinò che i gemelli fossero buttati nel Tevere; gli incaricati dell'operazione ebbero pietà dei due bambini e li lasciarono in un cestino sulla riva del fiume. Qui entra in gioco la lupa, che udendo le lamentele dei bambini si avvicinò e li adottò, allattandoli fino a che il pastore Fausto si prese cura di loro. La statua si trova nell'Appartamento dei Conservatori, in una sala riservata alla stessa.
