saverome Forum and markets. From this vantage point I'm standing over the partially excavated remains of the Forum of Trajan looking over to the so-called markets, constructed in brick. Looming behind is the late medieval Torre delle Milizie. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive 13h

saverome Awe-inspiring. Every time I pass by this 2C AD structure, I'm blown away. Even if it's a rebuild of a rebuild, with plenty of design flaws. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive #saverome Currently conservation work going on in the front porch. 1d

saverome Rostra. Up these curved steps you went in the imperial period. The speaker's platform (called rostra because it was decorated with the "beaks" used to ram ships during naval battles) was one among many in the forum, but certainly the most famous. Close to the Curia (later squeezed by the insertion of the Arch of Septimius Severus) it was the space that accommodated famous funerary orations, including Mark Antony's praising Julius Caesar. #meetrome #ancientromelive #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #saverome 5d

saverome Where Caesar died. Largo Argentina contains one end of the Curia in which Julius Caesar was assassinated March 15, 44 BC. The rest of the historical building is beneath the road and sidewalk pictured. Start digging for one of history's most iconic spots! (And maintain better the 4 temples in the Largo pit!) #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive #saverome See my #periscope there today! 7d

saverome In the Roman Forum. Inside the Basilica Aemilia, Rome's great Augustan era law court. Amazing that it was constructed at the end of the first century BC and remained in use until its destruction in AD 410 during the Sack of Rome. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive See my #periscope inside the Forum today. 1w

saverome Early morning reflection. Water's turned off when the crew arrives to vacuum up the coins- destined for a public charity. #meetrome #ancientromelive #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome The lovely fountain was recently cleaned and restored by @fendi 1w

saverome Forums. The imperial fora built by emperors joined the Forum Magnum in different points. Here the newly re-erected columns from the Severan-age Forum of Peace on the left adjoin the Forum Transitorium space on the right (Domitianic). In the distance, the Curia in the Forum Magnum and Temple of Saturn on the Capitoline slopes. #latergram #reconstructedhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive #saverome #meetrome 2w

saverome Panoramic terrace, looking down onto the Forum Romanum. The central piazza is covered with grass. The central hall of the Basilica Iulia is covered with grass. The front portico of the Basilica Aemilia is covered with grass. There is a lot to do in the central Forum area. #heritagepreservation #meetrome #saverome #unite4heritage #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive 2w

saverome Forum of Nerva. Essentially constructed by Domitian, this narrow forum space became THE monumental street (Argiletum) leading into the Forum Magnum. Beautifully illuminated these days (funded by @unilever). The remains of the Tor Dei Conti in the background. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive 2w

saverome Friends, Romans, countrymen- I spent the day in the Forum looking at a series of conservation issues. It's amazing how much progress has been made - new accessible routes for all visitors, lots of areas opened up. There are a many more new things to explore and learn about this spring. Here is a view of the curved steps of the rostra next to the Arch of Septimius Severus. In the distance the Curia - Senate house rebuilt in the 3C AD. ##meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #ancientromelive 2w

  •   saverome @romaninparis I would simply say spend a lot of time there and explore every place, including Lacus Iuturnae 2w

saverome Valadier's Piazza del Popolo comes clean. The 19C lion fountains have been cleaned. The scaffolding is coming down! The standout obelisk was not restored this time. Augustus brought it from captured Egyot to decorate the Circus Maximus. Pope Sixtus V brought it here, to the northern gate. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive 3w

saverome Keep looking up and walking around inside the best preserved temple from Ancient Rome! (Converted into a church AD 608). You'll always find a new angle. You'll always be delighted! #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive 3w
