Home / Travel & Landscapes / Italy / Roma / Termini / Palazzo Massimo 36

The present building was commissioned by Prince Massimiliano Massimo, so as to give a seat to the Jesuit Collegio Romano, originally within the convent of the church of Sant'Ignazio. The palazzo eventually became the main seat of the museum as well as the headquarters of the Agency of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities of Italy, in charge for the archaeological heritage of Rome. The museum houses the ancient art (sculpture, painting, mosaic work and goldsmith's craft from the Republican Age to the Late Anquity) as well as the numismatic collection, housed in the Medagliere, i.e. the coin cabinet.
