Near Villa Borghese, a few hundred meters from the National Gallery of Modern Art, a beautiful and impressive building stands on the Viale delle Belle Arti.

The Villa was built by the popes and remained their property until 1870 when, in the wake of the Risorgimento and the demise of the Papal States, it became the property of the Kingdom of Italy.

Villa Giulia

The Museum was founded in 1889 as part of the same nationalistic movement, with the aim of collecting together all the pre-Roman antiquities of Rome and Latium area, southern Etruria and Umbria belonging to the Etruscan and Faliscan civilizations, and has been housed in the villa since the beginning of the 20th century.

Its most famous single treasure is the terracotta funerary monument, the almost life-size Bride and Groom ( the so-called Sarcofago degli Sposi ) reclining as if they were at a dinner party.

Of particular interest are the exhibits of the Apollo from Veio ( VI century BC ), the high relief and the golden thin sheets from Pyrgi ( V century BC ), the Apollo dello Scasato from Falerii ( IV century BC ), the Centaur from Vulci ( VI century BC ) and the so-called Cista Ficoroni from Palestrina ( IV century BC ).

The reconstruction of the small Greek-Etruscan Temple of Alatri realized in 1890-91 in the garden of the villa is of particular interest.
