Det skal I lave
Imagine an alternative present, a world of coal and steel, where monocled archaeologists rend the ground with blackened steam-shovels, and clock-work automata sift through marble fragments of gods and emperors in search of forgotten treasures... Only one place in the world comes close to this steampunk fantasy, one of the most unique and incredible museums in the world: Centrale Montemartini. Housed in a decommissioned thermoelectric plant in the post-industrial neighborhood of Garbatella, it contains one of the world's most impressive (and seldom visited) collections of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. White marble contrasted with black iron; graceful goddesses framed by massive turbines; the stately monuments of Imperial Rome set against the hulking relics of industrial capitalism. The whole complex is one of the disorienting, unexpected and awe-inspiring sites in Rome. Centrale Montemartini is a satellite collection of the famous Musei Capitolini, housing some of the more recent and incredible finds that couldn't be housed in the main museum. On our visit we'll see some of the most beautiful and powerful works of art to survive from the ancient world, including colossal statues of gods, portraits of emperors, as well as mosaics, tombs and paintings. We'll also do a bit of "Industrial Archaeology", checking out the innards of this 100-year-old power station.
For over a decade now I've been exploring the hidden wonders and obscure archaeological sites of Rome. I'm a PhD student in Roman Art & Archaeology, specializing in the sculpture of the imperial period, especially the portraits of the so-called "Soldier Emperors" (217-284 AD). Although my home institution is in the USA (Princeton), I'm based here for research, and when I'm not in the library I love nothing more than traipsing through forgotten ruins and dusty museums. I've got a passion for history, ancient sculpture and finding the best carbonara in Italy!
