In 1997 hundreds of sculptures left the Capitol Museum in the centre of Rome in order to move into a former plant of electricity production in the Ostiense district. This may not sound very charming, but it turned out to be really good.
The museum was originally intended as a temporary solution to space problems at the Capitol Museum, but because of the success, it was decided to keep the new museum as a part of the Musei Capitolini, and it is now home to the museum's most recent collections. So today you can enjoy the beautiful white marble sculptures, posing alongside the old and giant machines.
