hidden no more: For more than a century, hundreds of thousands of artifacts — many dating to before the founding of Rome — have been locked away in the bowels of one of the world’s greatest museums, the Musei Capitolini, or Capitoline Museums of Rome. They remain hidden no longer. The Museums, along with the City of Rome and Enel Green Power North America, a renewable energy company, recently teamed up to bring the artifacts into the laboratories of U.S. universities. There they will be studied, restored, categorized and catalogued. MU received a shipment of artifacts, among them the ceramic vessel pictured here, earlier this year. The University was the first selected for the “The Hidden Treasure of Rome” project. Learn more about the project, and see other artifacts, via a video presentation hosted here: http://vimeo.com/106173581
