Foro di Augusto 2000 anni dopo - Roma Capitale sito web ufficiale
 



    A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY

    by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano

    DISCOVER


    The Forum of Augustus was built after Julius Caesar’s murder in 42 BC, on the eve of the battle of Filippi, in which Octavius, who later became Emperor Augustus, avenged the death of Julius Caesar by defeating Brutus and Cassius. The temple was dedicated to Mars Ultor (the Avenger), the god of war, who represented peace through power. The work of Paco Lanciano and Piero Angela, the visual and virtual reconstruction of the Forum and all its decorations, reconstructs the daily life of ancient Romans in a public space like this.

    THE PROJECT

    Stones can talk and tell many stories. A voyage through 2000 years of history, led by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano, discovering a magnificent archaeological site, once the centre of city life in ancient Rome, that begins from the still visible marbles of the Forum of Augustus.A captivating reconstruction, rich in scientifically and historically detailed information, situated inside the archaeological site itself. Here, spectators can witness a multi-projection show of lights, images, short films and animation set to a background of music, sound effects and the narration by Piero Angela in 6 languages ​​(Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish and Japanese).
    Visitors will have the opportunity to learn the story of the Temple dedicated to Mars the Avenger, constructed by Augustus to honour the memory of his great uncle Julius Caesar, after his assassination. A temple as tall as a 9-storey building that dominated the Forum from which one could access the halls of the Courts. Next to the Temple stood an immense statue of Augustus that was likely almost 12 meters tall, of which only a 1.66 meter-long footprint remains. Behind it, there was a large wall as tall as an 11-storey building constructed without the use of mortar. It has been standing for 2,000 years withstanding many earthquakes, including the earthquake of 1703 when a part of the Coliseum collapsed.This project is part of the celebrations held in honour of the 2000th anniversary of Augustus’ death (19 August 14 A.D.) and of a large effort geared towards the valorization of the Imperial Fora

    The stones speak. And they tell a lot of stories. The Forum of Augustus is an important sources of information for archaeologists, but also for all of us. Through light effects we will reconstruct the Forum, a place at the centre of many historical events in ancient Rome.

    While going over various aspects of the Roman world, the story will always be connected to the surrounding area, creatively using the remains of the Forum of Augustus to let the stones tell their story.

    Besides the faithful reconstruction of the area, with all kinds of special effects, the story will focus on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, 12 meters high, dominated the area next to the temple.
