In 1951, the Master had just won the competition for ideas for the bronze Gate of the Vatican Basilica. He needed a large space to devote himself to its realization and moved his residence along the Via Cassia.
As his artistic production increased, Crocetti decided to expand the spaces to contain his creations, until the realization of the Museum, the house where he would place "his children", as Crocetti used to call his works. The House-museum Crocetti, furnished today as then, testifies to the meditative character of the artist and the simplicity that have always characterized him.

Crossing the threshold you have the feeling of taking a dip in the past, as if the landlord should come back at any moment!

In 2013, 10 years after the artist’s death, the house became Casa Museo, part of the Museum System of the City of Rome.
