Photographer's Note

The famous Marcus Aurelius bronze in the courtyard of the Capitoline Museums. This is actually a reproduction; the original, which is more fragile, is on display inside the museum itself. This piazza was designed in 1536 by Michelangelo, but it took almost 100 years to complete (or more than 400 if you count the paving of the courtyard, only finally finished under Mussolini in the 20th century). The top of Michelangelo's Cordonata ramp is a wide staircase with shallow steps, reportedly intended to allow access for horses. The Piazza features the Palazzo Senatorio in the background, which is built atop the ancient Tabularium.
