Montemartini Power Station

Recommended
This electricity power station is an unusual setting to find sculpture from the Musei Capitolini collections. It displays around 400 objects from the 6C BC to the 1C AD, cheek-by-jowl alongside huge old diesel engines. Two such contrasting eras would not spring to mind as a natural match, but the effect is quite remarkable, as typified by the Esquiline Venus (Roman copy from the Imperial epoch), standing against a backdrop of turbines and machines.
