This spectacular temporary exhibition includes maps, views, and books on Rome from the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries.

Over 130 works of art, many from the Carlos Museum's permanent collection, representing ancient Rome will be showcased in three major sections—Antichita, Teatro, and Magnificenza.
