This building, acquired by the state in 1981, houses, on the first floor, Hellenistic Greek-inspired sculptures by Roman artists. The most significant works among them are: il Generale di Tivoli (the Tivolan General), La Fanciulla di Anzio (young girl from Anzio), and l'Efebo (the young Athenean man), all found during the Subiąco excavations; and l'Afrodite (Aphrodite) found at Villa Adriana. On the second floor is an extensive display of decorative features taken from various building complexes such as the Villa di Livia, which boasts an impressive view of the Roman Forum.
Not to be missed are the ancient numismatic and extraordinary Roman jewellery collections.
Another interesting offering is the mummia di Grottasossa (red grotto mummy), the only existing example of mummification from Roman times.
