Rome celebrates Emperor Claudius with exhibition

Claudio Imperatore: Messalina, Agrippina e le ombre di una dinastia.

6 April-27 Oct. Rome's Ara Pacis museum is holding a major exhibition dedicated to Claudius, one of the most controversial Roman emperors, who ruled from AD 41 to 54.

Featuring historical and archaeological artefacts, the exhibition highlights the life and reign of Claudius, from his birth in Lyon in 10 BC until his death in Rome in 54 AD.

The exhibition places a particular focus on the emperor's personality, his political and administrative work, his ties to Augustus and his brother Germanicus, as well as his tragic relationship with his wives Messalina and Agrippina.

For exhibition details see Ara Pacis website.
