PASSEGGIATE ROMANE 103.
The National Roman Museum, with several branches in separate buildings throughout Rome, shows exhibits from the pre- and early history of Rome, with a focus on archaeological findings from the period of Ancient Rome. The palace Massimo was built on the site once occupied by the Villa Montalto-Peretti, named after Pope Sixtus V, who had been born Francesco Peretti. The present building was commissioned by Prince Massimiliano Massimo, so as to give. In 1871, the Collegio had been ousted from the convent by the government which converted it into the Liceo Visconti, the first public secular high school of Italy. Erected between 1883 and 1887 by the architect Camillo Pistrucci in a neo-cinquecentesco style, it was one of the most prestigious schools of Rome until 1960. During World War II, it was partially used as a military hospital, but it then returned to scholastic functions until the 1960s, when the school was moved to a newer seat in the EUR quarter. In 1981, lying in a state of neglect, the Italian government acquired it for 19 billion lire and granted it to the National Roman Museum. Its restoration and adaptation began in 1983 and was completed in 1998. The palazzo eventually became the main seat of the museum as well as the headquarters of the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma. The museum houses the ancient art (sculpture, painting, mosaic work and goldsmith's craft from the Republican era). #museonazionaleromano #ancientrome#greekart#romempire#beniculturali30#tesori_italiani#kings_alltags#travelgram#whatitalyis#ilikeitaly#topeuropephoto#italiainunoscatto#top_hdr_photo#bellaitalia 🇮🇹 #volgoroma#topitaliaphoto#noidiroma#siviaggiare_lazio #mylittleobsession#microma#loverome#visitrome#noidiroma#igersroma#igerslazio#igersitalia#buongiornoroma
One of my favourite things about being home is that I can switch off from my busy nitpicking thoughts for a few weeks. I don’t have to worry about what to make for dinner because we’re either out or someone else has suggested what to cook. I can drive to go to work out and get to spin class because I can drive in the states. I go to bed early. My phone stays relatively out of sight (unless I need to get some work done). And you know what? There’s something so totally refreshing about switching your brain off for a few weeks. Does anyone else do this too when you go home? Or maybe on vacay? 💛🙌☺️

Вернулась из Ярославской области, 3 счастливых дня, было у меня😉. Два рассвета, два заката. Море фотографий, новые для меня места, ну и конечно старые, проверенные годами. Невозможно не заехать в это место, так и тянет свернуть с Ярославски.
Долго мучалась, какой кадр поставить первым, все ж победил ночной с фотоаппарата, против закатного с дрона.
А вам какой больше нравится?
