A Curatorial Conversation with scholar/curator Salvatore Settis and architect/designer David Chipperfield.

This event recording offers a behind-the-scenes look at the historic exhibition of the Torlonia Marbles, recently reopened in Rome. It features highlights from the most important private collection of ancient sculptures, newly restored and freshly displayed in the renovated rooms of the Capitoline Museums in Villa Caffarelli. The project has the highest importance for the history of art, archaeology, conservation and museography.

Curatorial Conversations bring to the Warburg curators of world-leading museums and galleries to discuss their work. The conversations, led by academics at the Warburg Institute, discuss the issues of setting the curatorial agenda and staging meaningful encounters with objects. The series is designed to draw out discussion of the discoveries made, challenges tackled and the lessons learned in installing objects in the permanent collection and putting together internationally renowned exhibitions.

This event took place on 23 June 2021.
