Project Description

Imperial Forums

The Fori Imperiali constitute a series of monumental plazas built in the course of a century and a half (between 46 BC and 113 AD) in the heart of the city of Rome aside of the emperors.
The Roman Forum, the old republican square, is not part of these whose first settlement dates back to the royal age (VI century BC) and which had been for centuries the political, religious and economic center of the city, but which never had a character unit.
Under Caesar and Augustus, the construction of the Basilica Giulia and the reconstruction of the Basilica Emilia, which bordered the long sides of the square, however, gave the Forum some regularity.
