The Capitoline Hilll and the Musei Capitolini  - Virtual Experience 

The "Capitolium" is the smallest of the Seven Hills of Ancient Rome, but probably the most important to this day. On the hill in fact there was the temple of Jupiter together with other important public buildings: later in Roman times, every city in the Roma Empire had its "Capitolium" to mark its dependency from Rome. 

During the Middle Ages the Capitoline hill changed its aspect but remain connected with the political power, here in fact there was the seat of the Municipality and of the Guilds of the City. In 1475 Pope Sixtus donated the Marcus Aurelius, the She-Wolf, and other important ancient Roman Bronzes to the citizens of Rome for them to be publicly displayed: it was the birth of the modern public museum. The palaces were later redesigned by Michelangelo Buonarroti who created also the unique design of the square, and frescoes were painted by the Cavalier d'Arpino to celebrate the Roman Heritage along with the ancient marbles.

With the Virtual Toru, we will be able to explore room by room and focus on the incredible architecture and art preserved in this unmissable museum and historical building spanning over two millennia.
