Centrale Montemartini: archaeology and industry

The combination of ancient statues and busts with the technological devices of Rome’s first public electrical power plant is an exciting sight to behold. The plant ceased all activity in the early 1960s and remained out of use until 1997, when it received the loan of a number of sculptures from the Capitoline Museums. This was meant to be temporary, but instead became a permanent exhibition. It represents an extraordinary example of museum conversion, a visual pastiche that results in a very evocative effect.
