There are few period images still in circulation able to show us what the Roman Aquarium looked like back on 29 May 1887, the day of its inauguration. Slightly more than a century has been enough to cancel from the unique history of this building any memory of the original appearance of the masterfully designed construction and its small but cheerful grounds, meant, together with the Aquarium, to serve both as a fish hatchery and a gathering place for the masses of the emerging middle class. Today, the inside of the elliptical hall is still striking for the grandiose scale of the space, marked by the luxuriant abundance of decorations and furnishings. The display windows holding the aquariums are framed as small patches of light in the magnificent overall composition, expression of the intricate mixing and compromising of purposes and interests laying behind the creation of the Roman Aquarium.
