Do you think you know every museum in Rome? We will put you to the test and will guide you to the most peculiar museums of the Capital city!
For curious people, for those who do not want to give up the culture but are not willing to devote an entire day to it, for those who cannot stand staying hours in long and endless lines waiting for their turn… we suggest several tours in the most original, smallest and little-known museums of the city. Places where also many Roman citizens have never been, little jewels full of culture.
From the Doria Pamphilj Gallery to Villa Farnesina, from the Giorgio De Chirico House and The Keats-Shelley Memorial House Museum to the Goethe House Museum, from the “Casina delle Civette” (House of the Owls) to the Mario Praz Museum… without forgetting the many museums that you have never imagined exist, like the Museo Storico dei Vigili del Fuoco (Fire Brigades Museum or Fire-Fighters Museum) and the Museo delle Auto della Polizia Di Stato (State Cop Car Museum) and the “Museum of the Souls of Purgatory” (Italian: Museo delle Anime del Purgatorio)…
“Between criminology and ancient cures”. Doctors, barbers and dentists, killers and protagonist of the Twentieth Century’s crimes: all this in two little and unknown museums. The Museo Storico Nazionale dell’Arte Sanitaria (a National Historical Museum of the Healthcare Art), Museo Criminologico (Criminology Museum)
“English Romanticism in Rome”. A guided visit to the places where Goethe and Keats lived and stayed, to discover the daily lifestyle of two legends of literature. Goethe House Museum, Keats-Shelley Memorial House Museum, and Protestant Cemetery (Italian: Cimitero Acattolico or Protestante).
“The secrets of the mind”. Recall with us the history of the Santa Maria della Pietà Psychiatric Hospital, from its establishment as a “Hospitale de’poveri forestieri et pazzi dell’Alma Città di Roma” to its final closing, today a ghost town where there is still alive the perception of centuries of brutal treatment and therapies of the human mind. Museo della Mente, Santa Maria della Pietà.
