A bit 'of history ...

The first public museum in the world, was founded by Pope Sixtus IV (1471-1484) who decides to donate to the Roman people his collection of classical sculptures and opens the first museum in the building capitol of the world. He himself, by implementing a project of Nicholas V (1447-1455), he founded the Vatican Library - second public library of Europe, after that of San Marco in Florence. His grandson Julius II (1503-1513) and follow their example by donating to the Holy See the ancient marbles of its properties that were exhibited in the sculpture garden - garden today octagon-core future pontifical museums and galleries. Over the years, these collections are expanding, thanks to renewed interest in the greek-roman civilization in the Renaissance. The collections will be enriched more and more thanks to a new Christian humanism praised by Raphael frescoes in the Stanza della Signatura - the study of Julius II.

Museums remained in this embryonic state until the eighteenth century, when the pages of Winckelmann and the Abbot Lanzi born archeology and the history of 'art (the first was Superintendent of Antiquities of Rome - the latter wrote the History of Painting d' Italy between 1795 and 1796). In those years, was born in the Vatican Museum Pio Clementino, first at the behest of Pope Clement XIV and Pius VI. From that moment, always new collections have been added going to cover a vast span of history and art from ancient Egypt to the present day.
