Baths of Caracalla

1816301-3

The Baths of Caracalla (Terme di Caracalla) in Rome, Italy, were the city’s second largest Roman public baths, or thermae, likely built between AD 212 (or 211) and 216/217, during the reigns of emperors Septimius Severus and Caracalla. They were in operation until the 530s and then fell into disuse and ruin.

From 13 june to 30 september 2018 it is possible to see the sculptures by Mauro Staccioli. The first retrospective dedicated to the Tuscan artist since his death is promoted by the Rome Special Superintendence for Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape.
The title of the retrospective, Sensitivity to the Environment, emphasizes that this exhibition is dedicated to the contemporary Italian artist who has more intuited the relationship between the work of art and the surrounding environment in which it finds its environment.
