Museo di Roma inTrastevere
The Museum of Rome in Trastevere, located in the seventeenth-century Convent of St. Egidio, hosts a permanent collection of paintings, graphics, installa- tions and life-sized photographic prints, representing 18th to 20th century Rome. The collection exhibits the salient aspects of popular life in Rome,  ltered through the tastes and convictions of the artists and folklor-
ists who represented it. The major themes present in the collection are the costumes, the popular dances, the secular and religious festivals and the crafts. Part of the collection is composed by the series of water- colors entitled Roma Pittoresca di Ettore Roesler Franz. Painted between 1876 and 1897, they portray the parts of Rome invested by the urban and architectural reno- vation initiated by the Italian Government after 1870, to adapt Rome to the new role of capital city.
Beautiful and signi cant is the program of tem- porary exhibitions, that diplay the profound cultural transformations experienced by the city in recent years. These intiatives include multimedia,  lm and photography, with exhibitions conferences to main- tain a constant dialogue with the social changes and their re ections on the visual arts and the media. The temporary exhibition ‘Dalla tradizione alla contempo- raneità. Visioni dalla città che cambia’, displays the changes and continuities in Roman social life from the nineteenth century until the 1980s. The sections of the exhibition encompass the traditional costumes, religious rites, festivals and amusements such as the Carnival, the luminarie and folk dances, aspects of daily life through crafts and activities that could be ob- served in the city.
