The Torlonia Marbles. Collecting Masterpieces

135 years after the publication of the only catalogue of the last of Rome’s great princely collections, this eagerly awaited volume finally allows a significant sequence of sculptures from the prodigious collection to emerge from the shadows; these have been carefully selected by the curators and presented by David Chipperfield in the sophisticated setting of the renovated spaces of Villa Caffarelli, adjacent to the Musei Capitolini, the oldest in the world.
