Gallery of Roman Scenes
The gallery contains six life-size scenes, the Roman Scenes from which it takes its name, and a selection of works showing various aspects of the popular traditions of Rome in the late eighteenth century and the entirety of the nineteenth, filtered through the perspectives of the artists who depicted them. The main themes illustrated are religion, the crafts, popular dress, carnival, fireworks and the saltarello (a popular dance).
