The Scuderie del Quirinale marks the 2,000th anniversary of Augustus's death with an exhibition that tells the extraordinary life story of the adopted son and great-nephew of Julius Caesar. The 40-year reign of Augustus was the longest in Rome's history and was marked by peace and prosperity. Under Augustus the empire expanded rapidly, to cover the whole of the Mediterranean basin. Augustus was both charismatic and politically astute, and his reign was documented extensively at the time by historians. Along with their writings, the exhibition explores the emperor's life and career with a selection of statues, portraits and jewellery. Organised in association with Musei Capitolini in Rome, and the Grand Palais and Musée du Louvre in Paris. Scuderie del Quirinale, Via XXIV Maggio 16, tel. 639967500, www.scuderiequirinale.it.
