Lo Spinario

The exhibition comprises 45 works inspired by the Spinario, the Greco-Roman bronze which is one of the most admired pieces in the Capitoline Museums collection.

The Hellenistic sculpture of a boy withdrawing a thorn from the sole of his foot was part of a donation to the people of Rome by Pope Sixtus IV in 1471.

Bronzes, paintings and numerous replicas are on loan from European museums.
