The exhibition narrates the toil and ingenuity of men who extracted tons of marble from the Apuan Alps then conveyed to the port of Luni, where huge ships were ready to sail to Rome. A work of engineering of unprecedented complexity, the construction of Trajan's Column testifies to the lofty heights reached by Roman civilization in the art of building.

The exhibition builds on, and expands on, "The Art of Building a Masterpiece. The Trajan Column," the exhibition that Museo Galileo conceived and realized in 2019, together with Gallerie degli Uffizi, in the Boboli Gardens.
