If you find yourself in Italy in the near future, you might want to check out “Portraits: The Many Faces of Power,” at the Capitoline Museums (Piazza del Campidoglio, Rome). This exhibition is one of five annual shows in Rome which trace the trajectory of Roman art through the centuries and through various media. The exhibition, running until September 25, showcases over one hundred fifty busts.
