Marble, terra-cotta, and bronze sculptures from the 15thto the 17th centuries were featured, including four reliefs by Mino da Fiesole depicting the life of St. Jerome, originally from Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the four principal basilicas in Rome, and Bernini's terra-cotta model for one of the angels on the Ponte Sant'Angelo. The catalogue includes an essay on the history of the Museum at the Palazzo Venezia, a catalogue of the exhibition, and a bibliography.
