Galleria Lapidaria

The underground gallery (Galleria di Congiunzione) linking the Capitoline palazzos was built at the end of the 1930s underneath Piazza del Campidoglio; inside the gallery we can see the remains of two-storey ancient Roman dwellings dating back to the II century AD. 
The Gallery currently houses the Musei Capitolini' new Galleria Lapidaria, with a selection of the most important items from the Capitoline's epigraphic collection.
