Capitoline Museums - Musei Capitolini
Capitoline Museums is the oldest public museum in the world, founder of Pope Sixtus IV in 1471, donating to the “people of Rome” a collection of antique bronze, which had previously been placed under the walls of Lateran.
Museums are housed in three palaces on the designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti Capitol Square in Rome: the medieval Senatorial Palace, the rebuilt Michelangelo renaissance Palazzo of the Conservatives and the new palace of the 17th century repeating its appearance.
The museum houses the original statue, which is a symbol of Rome - the she-wolf, feeding the twins Romulus and Remus. A copy of this sculpture is mounted to the left of the central building on a tall column.
