Beautiful Ruins

Imperial Fora

 

The Imperial Fora consist of a series of monumental fora (public squares), constructed in Rome over a period of one and half centuries, between 46 BC and 113 AD. The forums were the center of the Roman Republic and of the Roman Empire. they consisted of the Fora of Caesar, Augustus, Nerva, Trajan and the Temple of Peace.

 

The Imperial forums, while not part of the Roman Forum, are located relatively close to each other. Julius Caesar was the first to build in this section of Rome and rearranged both the Forum and the Comitium, another forum type space designated for politics, to do so. These forums were the centres of politics, religion and economy in the ancient Roman Empire.

I KNEW you would be showing us shots in a different way, SAVO! This is exactly what I mean. The lady at the bottom adds perfectly to the interest of this shot, as well as the B&W.

The picture would be so much better if a fuller view of the barometer (see Ray's comment) was included in the composition.

An imperial shot, nonetheless smile
SAVO: Haha, I actually wanted more of the 'barometer' but opted for more of the Ruins smile
