Museum of Roma in Trastevere

Museo di Roma in Trastevere

The Museum of Rome in Trastevere is located in the former monastery of Sant'Egidio, where the barefoot Carmelite monks lived until the fall of Rome. After it was restored, in 1976, the building became home to the Museum of Folklore and Roman poets, where materials on popular Roman traditions from the Museum of Rome and the Gabinetto Comunale delle Stampe were stored. In 2000, it was reopened to the public with the name of the Museum of Rome in Trastevere. The new renovations allow for a use of the building that is much more responsive to the current needs of the museum, lending itself particularly to the organization of temporary exhibitions especially of photography, performances, conferences and concerts. The museum's permanent collection shows the most important aspects of popular Roman life from the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, filtered through the tastes and beliefs of the artists and folklorists who represented it. The main themes in the collection are fashion, popular dances, secular and religious festivals, and crafts.
