The Capitoline Museums – What you need to know
The Capitoline collection was founded by Pope Sixtus IV with the donation of the 4 famous bronze sculptures – the head of Constantine, the she-wolf, the “Spinario”, or Boy Extracting a Thorn from his Foot and the “Camillus” – previously exhibited at the front of the Lateran. From then on, works continued to be collected at the Campidoglio, leading to the creation of the Capitoline museum complex. A plaque at the entrance to the Palazzo dei Conservatori proudly mentions the generous gift that Pope Sixtus IV gave to the City and people of Rome.
The Capitoline Museums were opened again to the public after a period of restoration and visitors are guaranteed an exceptional tour: the Palazzo dei Conservatori, the Tabularium, the Palazzo Caffarelli and Palazzo Nuovo make up the four sides of the Piazza del Campidoglio designed and created by Michelangelo.
