The murale of Skanderbeg in Piazza Scanderbeg in Rome, Italy

Palazzo Skanderbeg or Palazzetto Scanderbeg[1] is a Roman palazzo, located on the Piazza Scanderbeg (Num. 117) near the Trevi Fountain. It takes its name from its fifteenth-century host, the Albanian national hero Skanderbeg. It is the site of the National Museum of Pasta Foods (Museo Nazionale delle Paste Alimentari) which, currently closed for restoration, is devoted to the history of pasta, the machines used in its production, its nutritional qualities, and its depiction by artists ancient and modern.[2][3]
