The show

The National Roman Museum opens the doors of its deposits and reveals some extraordinary finds, making an unexpected cultural heritage accessible.

Through (re)discovered Deposits, in fact, the enhancement project is launched, consisting of a cycle of short exhibitions, which will make it possible to make the public aware of a very large number of works usually kept inside the deposits: thousands are the finds preserved in this " museum within the museum”, such as sculptures, mosaics, frescoes, objects in terracotta, glass and bronze. Finds found during more than a century of life of the National Roman Museum that tell not only the antiquity of Rome, but also the history of its transformation and its excavations, from the establishment of Rome Capital to today.

The first stage of the journey through the deposits of the National Roman Museum is dedicated to "Ulysses" (8 December 2022 - 8 January 2023) who, with his unquenchable thirst for knowledge, embodies

the inability to surrender in the face of an inaccessible world. Traveler par excellence, Ulysses is the ideal guide to begin this journey to discover works

unknown, (re)discovered and exhibited in the majestic Halls of the Baths of Diocletian. The journey of Ulysses will ideally continue in the second exhibition moment dedicated to "the others" (14 January - 19 February 2023), deepening the relationship between the ancient Romans and the other cultures. A reflection on the way in which the ancients perceived and represented different populations between stereotypes, mistrust and curiosity.

The project was carried out thanks to the support of ANAGINA - the National Association of Insurance Entrepreneur Agents and the layout by Contemporanea Progetti - which has been organizing exhibitions in Italy and around the world for over twenty years - making use of an immersive and multimedia high emotional content.

On the institutional website of the National Roman Museum ( texts in facilitated language created by the MNR Educational Service will be available, specifically dedicated to people with cognitive disabilities and their caregivers, to allow preparation for the visit and facilitate understanding of the exhibition path to this audience with special needs.
