The Museum of Rome or in Italian Museo di Roma is located in the Braschi building, in the heart of the Renaissance district of Rome. The collection of this museum is entirely dedicated to the history and culture of the city of Rome between 18th and 20th century.
The Museum of Rome has been situated in the building Braschi (Palazzo Braschi) ever since 1952. This building, located in the heart of the Renaissance district of Rome, between Navona square and Governo Vecchio Street, was built for Luigi Braschi Onesti (the nephew of Pope Pius VI) at the end of the 18th century. Palazzo Braschi is characterized by neo-renaissance design and additionally illuminated with monumental staircase completed at the beginning of the 19th century.
The collection of the museum was acquired from various sources and it is entirely dedicated to the history and culture of the city of Rome between the 18th and 20th century. On the first floor of the museum are displayed works of art from the papacy of Pope Pius (1775 – 1799) along with portraits of members of the papal court. There are also significant paintings of Italian and foreign artists (Pompeo Batoni, Pierre Subleyras, Joshua Reynodls) who lived and worked in Rome during the 18th century. Their works illustrate the contemporary art of Rome which today represents the European cultural heritage. The second floor is dedicated to paintings, sculptures and frescoes from homes of Rome's prestigious aristocratic families such as Barberini, Torlonia, Rospigliosi and Brancaccio.
