A satellite of the Capitoline Museums housed in a former power plant, Centrale Montemartini brilliantly juxtaposes gods and machines. More than 400 ancient Greek and Roman sculptures sit serenely beside boilers, engines, and other machinery at this light-filled museum in off-the-beaten-path Ostiense. It was actually Rome's first power plant built in 1912 and designed by architect Giovanni Montemartini, and was restored in 1997.
