Wondering what life in Rome used to be like? Step into the Museo di Roma in Trastevere and see what Romans wore, ate, danced to, and where they shopped way back when. The exhibits use models, paintings, photos, and videos to bring the bygone era of the city to life.
This special place has a story of its own. In the 17th century, this museum was the Carmelite convent of Sant'Egidio. Nowadays it celebrates the lives and achievements of Romans of the past.
The costumes, popular dances, secular and religious festivals, and handiworks of the locals have all been immortalized here. Possessions of poet Trilussa (1871 - 1950) are here too.
Popular 19th-century activities are brought to life in staged scenes here too: check out costumed characters in a tavern, at an apothecary, at the saltarello dance, and more.
And the fact it's in Trastevere, one of Rome's most historic districts, makes a trip here feel all the more authentic!
