Description

The Campidoglio rests on the smallest of Rome's seven hill. It is seat of the municipality of Rome and of the Capitoline Museums. The social and religious importance of the Campidoglio grew especially during the Republican era when several temples were built, including one dedicated to Jupiter, the most venerated in Rome. Today the main attraction is Campidoglio's Square designed by Michelangelo in 1537. The square faces St Peter's Basilica and has at its center the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius.
