The Unusual Rome series: a tour of Centrale Montemartini


Built in 1912 as a thermoelectric center, nowadays the Centrale Montemartini Museum shows marble statues from the Capitoline Collection set against the backdrop of preserve turbines, diesel engines and steam boilers to create a combination between art and industry, representing one of the most unconventional museum spaces Rome has to offer.

The natural light coming from the high windows creates a unique and dreamlike atmosphere that takes you back through time to the turn of the century and into Rome’s classical and thriving past, in a dialog through the centuries, where twisting pipes mix with impressive marble statues of heroes and gods.

All LUISS students are invited to join!
