  • Fori Imperiali Journey

    Journeys through Ancient Rome - 2 stories and 2 routes created by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano

    Forum of Augustus
    While spacing on various aspects of the Roman world, the story is still anchored to the site of Augustus, creatively using the remains of the Forum to try to let the stones “speak” for themselves. Besides the faithful reconstruction of the area, with special effects of all kinds, the story focuses on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, over 12 meters high, dominated the area next to the temple.

    The spectators will be accompanied by the voice of Piero Angela and by some amazing videos and reconstructions that show places as they looked like at the time of Augustus: a thrilling representation which combines historical and scientific rigor with entertainment.

    ROME, Fori Imperiali – Foro di Augusto
    Via Alessandrina, Largo Corrado Ricci side

    Forum of Caesar
    The story narrated by Piero Angela, accompanied by reconstructions and videos, starts from the history of the excavations made for the construction of Via dei Fori Imperiali, when an “army” of 1,500 construction workers were mobilized in an unprecedented work: razing to the ground an entire neighborhood and digging out the area until the level of ancient Rome was reached.
    To reach the Forum of Caesar the public will pass through the Forum of Trajan on a walkway and under the underground tunnel of the Imperial Fora, opened for the first time after the excavations of the last century.
    The visit seeks to evoke the role of the Forum in the life of the Romans but also the figure of Julius Caesar.
