THE MONUMENTS OF ROME
His real name is Flavian Amphitheatre, from all is known as the Coliseum and represent the authentic symbol of the city of Rome. It was built in 72 A.D. by emperor Vespasian and was completed eight years later by his son Titus. The Coliseum was the equivalent, for its time, to our stages, although the spectators were very different from those of our day.
It is the icon of the authority of Rome from antiquity to our days. The actual structure dating from the 16th century when Michelangelo created the magnificent square and the impressive Cordonata stairway. Two of the three buildings host to the Capitoline Museums.
Roman shrine devoted to all gods (in the Greek pantheon, meaning “of all the gods”). Built by Marco Vipsanio Agrippa in 27 BC as its bath in the Campus Martius in Rome, was completely rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian (a.d. 120-125 a.c.). In the 7th century was converted into a church devoted to Mary and the Martyrs.
Fontana di Trevi:
The most celebrated fountain in Rome, designed by the architect Salvi. It was build in 1735 under the pontificate of Clement XII. The sculptures describe several occurrences linked to the discovery of the source of the water from where it comes to feed the fountain.
Piazza di Spagna:
The symbol of the square is focused on the stairway of the Trinità dei Monti. It was built in 1726 by Francesco De Sanctis and it is connected to the Pincio serving as a wonderful background, composing one of the most lively and pictorial architectural scenes. The architectural motifs are admirably. It represent the highest achievement of the 18th century Roman urbanism.
Piazza Navona is one of the most impressive and well-known places of Rome. It is a compound urban Baroque deriving from stage Domitian according to his shape. Built before 86 BC (275 metres long, was off 106 and could hold around 30,000 spectators) on an area of the Campus Martius, which existed under Caesar and Augustus a wood fence and where Nerone had constructed an amphitheatre for calendar purposes.
The impressive square with Bernini’s Colonnade borders the largest church of Christianity, dominated by the imposing dome of Michelangelo. The erection of the basilica extends through the 16th century by Michelangelo, Giacomo della Porta and Domenico Fontana. The basilica stands on the foundations of a church built over the tomb of the Apostle by Emperor Constantine.
