The exhibition is a surprising fresco of the evolution and contradictions of the city. An overall portrait capable of capturing the open, bold frankness that distinguishes them in the details, gestures and looks of the Romans. Poetry and beauty, strength and violence, historical architecture and the transformation of the suburbs weave a story full of emotion.
