- This is a somewhat unusual setting for a museum, but the old electricity power station on Via Ostiense will not cause visitors any problems. The statues are exhibited next to old pieces of machinery that once were used in the station. The statues on exhibition belong to the Capitoline Museums and were found during the early years of the 20th century. The large spaces available mean that enormous sculptural works can be displayed. Among the pieces there is the Esquiline Venus, the statues that used to be placed in Largo Argentina, and a mosaic showing hunting scenes which was originally the floor a noble's villa at the time of Emperor Constantine.
