Stones Can Talk and They’ve Got a Lot to Tell Us. The marble blocks still visible in the Forum of Augustus and the Forum of Caesar are the starting point for a fascinating tour in discovery of magnificent archaeological sites and a temple that was at the heart of events in Ancient Rome. A tour created by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano. Visitors will have the chance to see two exciting portrayals of life in Ancient Rome, reconstructed within the Imperial Fora using light, images, film and animation. The two reconstructions will be accompanied by a wealth of historic and scientific information, music and a tale by Piero Angela.
FORUM OF AUGUSTUS
Visitors will stand on a flight of Roman stairs to watch a multimedia show portraying the history of the Forum and temple dedicated to Mars Ultor, commissioned by Augustus in memory of Julius Caesar. It was a temple that stood nine floors high and towered over the Forum of Augustus; access was via the halls of the courthouse. The tale also touches on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, a good 12 metres tall, dominated the area next to the temple.
FORUM OF CAESAR
In this part of the tour, visitors walk within the Forum itself and among the marble that remains of this enormous piazza, which at the time was surrounded by majestic colonnades and overshadowed by the imposing temple of Venus Genetrix. The tour explores the role of the Forum in the lives of the Roman people and the figure of Julius Caesar, an intelligent and ambitious man, idolised by some but hated and feared by others.
