Capitoline Museums of Rome – the world's oldest public museums. Museums began in 1471 thanks to Pope Sixtus the Fourth, who passed on to the `` Roman people '' collection of antique bronzes.
Museums are located on the Capitoline Square, designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti, in three buildings - – the medieval Senatorial Palace, the Renaissance Palazzo of the Conservatives and the New Palace from the 17th century. Part of the constantly growing exhibition in the 20th century was transferred to the neighboring Caferelli-Clementino Palace.
The Conservatory Palace is mentioned in many books of art history as a building in the construction of which a pilaster was used, stretching over several floors .
