This fall, museums around Rome will be largely dedicated to showing and embracing their history with exhibitions such as this one that explores one of the city’s most famous emperors, Augustus Caesar. Augustus, the adopted son of Julius Caesar encouraged Rome to expand and flourish to its greatest potential so it is no surprise that the city is honoring him and his career to mark the 2,000th anniversary of his death. His influence and importance is clearly depicted through statues dictating an imperial stance and portraits displaying elaborate décor found on cameos. Be sure to discover his story through various sculptures, paintings and jewelry carefully displayed together for the first time ever.
