Virtual tour of the seat of power in Rome


Voir tous les événements

Immerse yourself in a fabulous virtual tour, where you’ll be guided through a 3D model of Ancient Rome. The public architecture of Ancient Rome is a physical manifestation of power. Basilicas, mausoleums, imperial forums, columns, and of course the imperial cult temples were all built for the glory of those who commissioned them or to whom they were devoted. Sometimes, certain troubling events in politics led to celebrations of a predecessor and their memory being questioned, which resulted in their exclusion from official accounts: this was known as damnatio memoriae. Visitors can discover a number of these monuments and understand how some of them were renamed or why their purpose was later called into question.
