The Barracco Museum houses a collection of ancient sculptures (Egyptian, Assyrian, Cypriot, Etruscan, Greek, Roman, and Medieval) donated in 1905 to the Municipality of Rome by the baron Giovanni Barracco, attentive collector and passionate scholar.The collection constitutes a unicum of its kind presenting a thorough overview of the ancient civilizations operating around the Mediterranean basin. The sculptures are exhibited according to an exact topographic and chronological order and in compliancewith the scientific criteria that guided the scholar in the formation of his collection. The library, donated by Barracco with the collection and mainly furnished witharchaeological texts regarding the works exhibited in the Museum, is also peculiar. Since 1948 the collection is housed in Palazzo Le Roy, one of the most representative buildings of the Italian Renaissance architecture in Rome, knownalso as Farnesina ai Baullari or Piccola Farnesina (Small Farnesina).
