Pictures of the National Roman Museum, Rome, artefacts, antiquities and exhibits.The National Roman Museum exhibits Roman archaeology excavated from Ancient Rome. This includes an incredible and rare collection of Roman fresco paintings from Villas of ancient Rome including the Villa of Livia and Augustus. Obviously painted fresco walls of villas usually disappeared when walls collapsed as ancient Rome went into decline or were washed away over the last 2000 years. The fresco painting of so many Roman villas exhibited at the National Roman Museum gives visitors a rare glimpse into Roman interior decorating practices. Along with the Roman frescoes, the National Roman Museum has a large collection of Roman mosaic floor panels completing the picture of Roman tastes in interior design. Important Roman statues are exhibited at the National Roman Museum including the iconic statue of a “Discus Thrower” a faithful copy of one of the most admired works of antiquity; the bronze discobolus by Greek sculptor Myron circa 450 BC. Statues of Roman Emperors and Roman Gods are also exhibited as part of the fine collection of Roman sculpture held at the National Roman Museum.
