Piazza del Campidoglio is one of Rome's most beautiful squares, designed in the sixteenth century by Michelangelo and laid out between two summits of the Capitoline Hill, the most important of Rome's fabled seven hills. From the founding of Rome until its fall almost one thousand years later, the Capitoline Hill symbolized the epicenter of Rome's might and many of the city's most important buildings stood on this hill. Later, during the Middle Ages, the site continued to play an important part in Rome's history. The senate of Rome assembled here and even today it still has some political significance since the city hall is located here.

The Palazzo Nuovo (New Palace) was designed by Michelangelo as a virtual mirror image of the Palazzo dei Conservatori. It was finished by the brothers Carlo and Girolamo Rainaldi in 1654. In 1734, pope Clement XII made the art collection in the palazzo open to the public, thus creating the world's first public museum.
