PEPLUM Location: Museo Della Civilta Romana

The "Museo Della Civilta Romana" in Rome was often used as exterior set in many PEPLUM flicks. So many in fact that it's hard to keep up. The following photos are just a tiny sample of films made there.

1 - Sophia Loren in Two Nights with Cleopatra
2 - Rhonda Fleming in The Queen of Babylon
3 - Scene from Goliath against the Giants
4 - Mickey Hargitay and Jayne Mansfield in Hercules vs the Hydra (The Loves of Hercules)

There's many more than that. There's also THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS, APHRODITE GODDESS OF LOVE, etc. This is just a small sample.
