Fori Imperiali

Virtual Reconstruction: How Rome was

While visiting the Imperial Forum's area today, one finds oneself in front of spaces and remains of what were once piazzas, streets, and palaces 2000 years ago. Certainly, it is fascinating to know that certain rituals and activities took place in these areas, but it is difficult to imagine effectively the architectural structures.
So here, we offer a computer graphic reconstruction of some of the buildings back then, giving you an idea of the monumentality erected thousands of years ago.
