Museum of Rome in Trastevere
The Museum of Rome in Trastevere was founded in 1974 with the name of Museum of Folklore and of the Modern Roman Poets. It is located in an ex seventeenth century Carmelite convent that belonged to the Municipality since 1875. After being closed for a long time it was recently reopened with the new name.

Of the previous setting the new museum keeps the so-called Scenes of popular life in nineteenth century Rome(natural-size reconstructions and dummies dressed with costumes), such as a tavern, a public copyist, an apothecary, the “saltarello” dance, the wine cart, the Pipers.
A collection of nineteenth-twentieth century paintings, drawings, and prints dedicated to the aspects of the social life and the famous water-colors by E.R. Franz (1845-1907) on Lost Rome are also exhibited.
The museum also contains some of the personal possessions of the great poet Trilussa (Rome 1871 - 1950), which were donated to the Municipality of Rome after his death and are in part exhibited in the video installation space called after him.
