Roman Forum (HDR)

Visit the Rome's Set

 

The Roman Forum (Latin: Forum Romanum, Italian: Foro Romano) is a small open rectangle surrounded by the ruins of ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this marketplace as the Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum. It was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections, venue for public speeches and gladiatorial matches, and nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city's great men.

Il Foro Romano (Forum Romanum, sebbene i Romani si riferissero ad esso più spesso come Forum Magnum o semplicemente Forum) era situato nella valle compresa tra il Palatino ed il Campidoglio e costituì il centro commerciale, religioso e politico della città di Roma.
