Guided tour of the Palazzo Massimo

Palazzo Massimo was built at the end of the XIXth century as a school for the Massimo family, an old aristocratic roman family. Toward the end of the 1980s this school became the National Museum of Rome and was named Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. Today it houses the most important collection of antique art in Rome with a vast array of sculptures, frescoes, mosaics and coins, displayed on four different floors. In the basement we will see the museum's numismatic collection, that shows the evolution of currency in Italy. The ground and first floors contain many antique sculptures, including two different versions of the "Discobolus of Myron" (the discus thrower), the statue of Apollo (found in the Tiber), the "Young girl from Anzio", the "Boxer at Rest", the "Reclining Hermaphrodite" and various portraits of different emperors. Lastly, on the second floor, we will see many mosaics, but more importantly frescoes from the Villa of Livia (located at Prima Porta) and from Villa Farnesina. The collections at Palazzo Massimo are displayed in chronological order, showing us the evolution of ancient Roman art
