The Museo del Corso, is located in the historical centre of Rome on the ancient road that connects two of its most famous squares, Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Venezia, along which the stately mansions of great Roman families and headquarters of the City's very old and prestigious institutions are to be found.

Mr. Roberto Memmo, businessman and active art patron and collector, universally renowned for his sensitivity to preserving cultural heritage, which manifests itself in his firm commitment to the valorization and divulgation of the arts, on January 24, 1972 decides to honour the memory of his lost son by founding the Fondazione Memmo. His generous and relentless abnegation has enabled him to create with the Fondazione Memmo, rare example in Italy, an entirely privately run cultural organisation. The incredible objectives reached, the appreciation of the public and of the scholarly world earn him the “Mirò gold medal” by Unesco and the Getty Conservation Institute. The prestigious prize was given to him in occasion of the World Congress on the Condition of Artists held in Paris in 1997 as an acknowledgement for his contribution to the promotion of the arts on an international level.

This rather grand building was designed as Rome's aquarium (and its name is still the Acquario Romano, Roman Aquarium). Located close to Stazione Termini, the building is now used for exhibitions. The only fish and other sea creatures left are those painted and carved on the walls of the building. It's an interesting setting, and the exhibitions within can be worth a visit if you're in the area. The building has been designated as the Casa dell'Architettura, an architectural cultural centre.
Acquario Romano is a also friendly B & B in the historical center of Rome at 2 minutes walking from Termini central railway Station and 5 from Colosseo, Forum and Domus Aurea.
The house faces the Manfredo Fanti Square and his characteristic Roman Acquarum that inspired the name of our B&B. The Acquario Romano is located in Piazza Manfredo Fanti, on Via Principe Amadeo (and is generally closed at lunchtimes). Ring the bell by the gateway for admittance.

The first phase of conversion of the MACRO was completed in 1999 with the restoration of the old plant design of the Peroni brewery, built in the early twentieth century on via Reggio Emilia, and it has recently been expanded by the leading French architect Odile Decq. The new wing of the building, with the entrance at the corner of via Nizza and via Cagliari, creates a dynamic balance, integrating the new structure into the district, putting the museum in dialogue with the city, offering the visitors and Roman citizens both the new exhibition and urban spaces, such as the large terrace, the parking, the library and the restaurant. The New MACRO joins the spaces of the MACRO Testaccio and the Pelanda, inside the former slaughterhouse in Testaccio, to make this multifaceted cultural centre a Roman institution that aims to promote the value of contemporary Italian and international art.

The Museum System of the Municipality of Rome is made up of an extremely diverse group of museum spaces and archaeological sites, of huge artistic and historical value. As well as the Capitoline Museums, the oldest public museum in the world, the museums that make up the System include the Museum of Rome, which gathers together the most important examples of the art history of Rome from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the nineteenth century, MACRO, a museum for those interested in contemporary art, the museum of the Villa Torlonia, a perfect meeting point of nature and culture, and the Planetarium and the Astronomical Museum, an ideal destination for anyone wanting to encounter the new frontiers of science. In 2006 it has been enriched by the acquisition of several prestigious new spaces, including the Museum of the Altar of Peace, designed by Richard Meier, and the Carlo Bilotti Museum in the Villa Borghese's Orangery, which contains a collection of works by De Chirico. The wide scope of what is on offer and the numerous initiatives (events and temporary exhibitions) this System of museums hosts, makes it unique in Italy.
