The Bronze Age city of Rome on the famous hills
4th Century Imperial Rome.
Theatre of Marcellus
Here is the column as it stands today near the Imperial Forum.
And back in the museum
Busts and statues of famous Romans abound
Antinuous, deified lover of Emperor Hadrian.
Most of all I was fascinated to see our own neighbourhood in Rome on the gigantic model of 4th century Rome.
On the bottom is the race track that became Piazza Navona, in the middle, the perfectly preserved Pantheon which we can see from our balcony and to the north the Temple of Hadrian which is now incorporated into the Rome stock exchange and its courtyard which is now Piazza di Pietra just doors down from our building. Amazing! What a town!
