saverome Hill removal. This fenced in area is a little hillside slated for destruction. It is largely a mound of modern material. In its place will be a new reception- ticket booth center with bathrooms for visitors to the Colosseum. It should also help reduce the line into the Colosseum. The project will begin shortly. And surely underneath there will be traces of Ancient Rome to be discovered! #meetrome #saverome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 6h

saverome Work in progress. I won't sugar-coat it, the Colosseum still needs a lot of work: the surrounding piazza (on all sides), inside, and the new visitor center to be built into the hillside adjacent to the Arch of Constantine (see previous photo). Still, a lot of progress has been made in the past year. Wish I could say the same for the city as a whole!! #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive #saverome 1d

saverome Barbarian decoration. Looking at the 4C arch next to the Colosseum. In the distance, the Vittoriano. #meetrome #saverome #ancientromelive #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory 2d

saverome Rooftopping Rome. In the heart of the city every terrace (including this communal one, used for drying laundry) gives you a unique view of Rome's skyline. Here the Vittoriano and the facade of the Aracoeli church on the Capitoline. #meetrome #saverome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 3d

saverome Trevi Fountain, another example of Rome's later glory resting on ancient precedents- here the Aqua Virgo. Thanks for joining me for a late night #periscope #meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive @olloclip 5d

saverome Spring captured. The essence of the southern Campus Martius: Theater of Marcellus, Temple of Apollo Sosianus, and (in the patch of grass) Temple of Bellona. #meetrome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome 6d

saverome Tiber Island, joined by two bridges in antiquity, was known as "between 2 bridges." The one on the right, Pons Fabricius, has been standing since 62 BC. To the left - Augustan Ponte Rotto. In the distance- the Sinagoga. #meetrome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome 6d

saverome Roman might. Once again Gruppo Storico Romano hosted a series of events last week for Rome's birthday April 21, with 1500 ancient Roman men, women, and children parading through the city triumphantly, concluding in Circus Maximus for a spectacle of entertaining fun. The backdrop: palace of the emperors on the Palatine hill. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive #saverome 7d

saverome Epic history. View of the Capitoline hill slope, with the Clivus Capitolinus road passing between the Temple of Vespasian and Temple of Saturn. At the end of the road you arrived at the temple precinct of Jupiter Optimus Maximus. #meetrome #saverome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 1w

saverome Restored history. There's been attention paid to fountains recently. Here the Castores once part of the Temple of Serapis of the Hadrianic period: Now in this new position, cleaned over the past past few months thanks to private sponsorship. #meetrome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome 1w

saverome Thanks for coming to our #wwim13 #meetrome InstaMeet. It was so great to meet you all in the ancient cattle market then head over to the spectacle in the Circus Maximus. It was such a pleasure to see so many new faces: students of heritage preservation, university administrators, those of you in NGOs, an interdenominational church, tourist, designer. Let's do this again in May, with more planning. Hope you enjoyed the day! Welcome to the community. #communityfirst #ancientromelive #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory please send me a comment so I can tag you in the photo! 1w

saverome History by night. There's nothing like taking a stroll through Trajan's Forum to view Trajan's Column on the way to a tunnel beneath Via dei Fori Imperiali for a light show in Caesar's Forum. It's all part of the engaging #ViaggioneiFori spectacle each night starting today. You must experience this (or the Forum of Augustus show) when you are in Rome. #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #meetrome #ancientromelive 2w

saverome Forum Romanum. It's finally gotten the night illumination back, after standing in the dark for more than a decade. So glad for this progress, to match the lighting of the Imperial Fora. There's never been a better time to explore Ancient Rome at night! #meetrome #ancientromelive #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory See my #periscope there last night 2w

saverome Big history. The Pantheon barely fits in the frame. 2C AD wonder that still stands, leaving little to the imagination. On April 21, Rome's birthday, the sun (if shining) will strike the doorway with a beam of light. #meetrome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #olloclip 2w

saverome Up the Quirinal! Today it's the papal stalls and palace. In the past, the entire area was once covered by the Baths of Constantine and Temple of Serapis (statues of Castores that decorate the fountain at the end of the street were recently restored through private sponsorship). #meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive 2w

saverome Tiber crossing. Standing on Ponte Príncipe Amedeo Savoia Aosta, looking toward Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II (in the vicinity of Nero's bridge) and beyond to Castel S Angelo on this fine spring day. #meetrome #ancientromelive #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 2w

saverome Spring azaleas of the Spanish Steps. The tradition has changed this year due to the ongoing restoration of the Spanish Steps. Makes the Cordonata ramp look particularly lovely, except for the nearby parked cars! #meetrome #saverome #ancientromelive #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory 3w

saverome Window to the past. Standing on the Capitoline, looking toward the Palatine, framed by the Arch of Septimius Severus and Temple of Saturn. #meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive See my #periacope there today. 3w

saverome Out in the open history. Temple A from the Republican era, converted into a church, later incorporated into a medieval neighborhood, revealed under Mussolini. Today: visible, exposed, at risk. I pass by every day and ask myself what it will take for daily maintenance (promised for years- supposed to open to public this fall) and a true site management plan (hat would include a permanent roofing system). #saverome #meetrome #ancientromelive #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #unite4heritage 3w
