CAPITOLIUM SQUARE

The very heart of Rome and seat of the city Council, Capitolium Square stands atop the homonymous hill. In 1536, during Emperor Charles I visit to Rome, Pope Paul III Farnese was so ashamed by the neglectful state of the hill, that he commissioned the project for a new accommodation to Michelangelo. A copy of the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius – the original is in Palazzo dei Conservatori – towers in the middle of the square, also overlook by the Musei Capitolini.
