Centrale Montemartini - 2011

A mile or so south from the centre of Rome, out on Via Ostiense, one of the city's
first powerstations has been turned into a new home for several hundred pieces of
statuary from the Capitoline museum, including many of their recent acquisitions.

And, by way of contrast, there are pictures from another visit, a decade
earlier, here...... http://www.pbase.com/isolaverde/martini

:::::::::::::::::::

Update: summer 2012: There's now another way to reach the museum, which may be more convenient
than the bus. With the opening of the new "Ponte Ostiense", a land bridge over the Ostia Lido
railway and Metro lines, it's possible to travel to "Garbatella" station (only 5 stops south
of Termini on Line B), and walk the rest of the way.

Nearby, Rome's former wholesale produce market is under restoration - as part of the
"Citta' di Giovani" (City of Youth) project, aimed at revitalising the Ostiense area
- so do expect somewhat of a building site for a while!
