Colours of the Romans. Mosaics from the Capitoline Collections
The exhibition includes a great selection of mosaics, masterpieces from the Capitoline collections that are little known to the general public.
An important event that describes, through the coloured story of these works, parts of Roman history, explaining the original contexts where they were found. The mosaics are presented alongside the frescoes and sculptures which together with them represented the decoration of the buildings from where they came. This presentation allows us to understand the iconographic choices, the decorative designs and the original appearance of the paintings as an expression of the taste and needs of the commissioners. All this offers a significant cross-section of Roman culture over a large period between the 1st century BC and the 4th.
