Thanks to this extension, any visitors at Castel Sant’Angelo will have the unique chance to admire some of the masterpieces of ‘500-‘600 Italian art: works by Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Pietro da Cortona, only to name a few.
The exhibition aims at highlighting the intimate connection between art and catholic faith between 16th and 17th century, when the Popes gradually turned the arts into a vehicle to spread Christian religion.

Being the machines on show fully operational, visitors can touch them and they set them in motion.

ROMAN HISTORY THROUGH THE GLADIATORS’ LIVES

ROMAN HISTORY THROUGH THE GLADIATORS’ LIVES

”To study how gladiators’ customs and equipments changed it means to study Roman society and the evolution of its military art”. Inspired by such a perspective curators of the ultimate exhibition on gladiators put on display more than 350 artefacts in the core of Rome: at Piazza Navona.
The reason for this location is quite simple: in place of the beautiful churches and fountains we nowadays observe, once upon a time there was a magnificent Roman stadium to host gladiators’ combats, known as Stadium of Domitian. The official shift from Colosseum as a traditional location for these public shows occurred when the Colosseum itself had to undergo renovation works already in the II century AC.
“Gladiators: Arms and armors in the Roman Empire” outlines the history of gladiators’ combat art from its origin – when the gladiator was just looked at as slave-warrior – to its latest times – when the gladiator raised to the status of a modern celebrity.
Venue: Museo dello Stadio di Domiziano, Piazza Navona.
Tickets from €6.
Yes Hotel has got direct connection to Piazza Navona through many bus lines: stay with us for a centrally placed accommodation!
