The Archaeological Exhibition of 1911

Mostra Archeologica nelle Terme di Diocleziano (Roma 1911): Sala della Gallia

The initial kernel of the collection came form the Archaeological Exhibition organised in 1911 in the halls of the Baths of Diocletian under the direction on Rodolfo Lanciani, as part of the celebrations for the Fiftieth anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
A series of models were created for the exhibition - both casts and recreations - of relevant scientific and cultural interest that would enable the exhibition’s organisers to create a permanent display.
