The permanent collection of the Museo di Roma in Trastevere exhibits the salient aspects of popular life in Rome from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century, filtered through the tastes and convictions of the artists and folklorists who represented it. The major themes present in the collection are the costumes, the popular dances, the secular and religious festivals and the crafts.
The Museum of Rome in Trastevere is situated in Piazza Sant’Egidio, in a historic building. Even the Piazza takes its name from the nunnery, which included the small church of Saint Egidio.
The earliest nucleus of the convent was founded in 1601 at the church of Saint Lorenzo on the Janiculum, which was later restored and dedicated to Saint Egidio, as a home for the religious order of Carmelite nuns.
From Monday 25 February for conservation works, Ettore Roesler Franz's watercolours cannot be visited
In the two exhibition halls on the first floor, the museum hosts from 1 March 2013 exhibitions:
- Faces, stones, the city: Mario Carbone, Emilio Gentilini 1952–1985, photographs from the collection of the Museum of Rome in Trastevere.
The exhibition ranges during the second half of 900, and highlights the various ways in which the Italian landscape has been approached on the basis of different "schools of thought" to which belonged the authors.
The exhibition features a selection of works by the photographer Pino Settani, who died in 2010. A selection of unpublished images from the extensive archive of the artist. These are accompanied by the portraits of celebrities from the world of cinema and culture, some of which have become true icons, such as the series of "Portraits with red scarf".
