Palazzo Nuovo or Palazzo Nuovo in Italian is located on the north side of Piazza del Campidoglio. The palace was turned into one of the best museums in Capitol Hill during the Renaissance. Many works of ancient art are kept here. The ticket that you buy here is also valid for another Capitoline Museum - Palazzo dei Conservatori. The first group of bronze sculptures was given to the city by Pope Sixtus IV in 1471, and additions were made by Pope Pius V in 1566. Palazzo Nuovo was designed by Michelangelo as part of the reconstruction of Piazza del Campidogli and after in 1655 a collection of beautiful antique statues was collected here. In 1734, Pope Clement XII Corsini decided that the Palazzo Nuovo building would be turned into the first public museum in the world.
