 The Torlonia Marbles Collecting Masterpieces at the Capitoline Museums

Until 1 Sept

The Torlonia family collection of ancient sculptures is the most important one still in private hands. It’s full of astonishing treasures like the Hera Giustiniani and the so-called “Old Man of Otricoli.” The display, by David Chipperfield, is crammed into a surprisingly awkward series of small rooms. Some of the pieces, especially the sarcophagi, seem to have been bleached.
