Exhibitions
Walls. Le Mura di Roma
Now on - Oct 20, 2018

'Walls. Le Mura di Roma' is a photographic exhibition by the Roman photographer Andrea Jemolo, telling the story of the largest monument of imperial Rome, The Aurelian Walls. Jemolo's images are taken from various stretches along the 13 kilometer-long wall, capturing moments of life and nature along the way. While some sections of the wall have been incorporated into gateways and buildings, others have been repossessed by nature. Shrubs, vines and rhizomes climb upwards, forming cracks in the behemoth structure, serving as a reminder of the transience of human history.

Description

Architect Richard Meier's Ara Pacis Museum is the only major contemporary structure to have been built in the historic center of Rome since World War II.

If you were living in Rome 2,000 years ago, you would now be very, very old. But also importantly: you would've been alive during the time of Augustus, the first Roman Emperor (and grand-nephew of Julius Caesar).

His reign ushered in a period known as the Pax Romana (The Roman Peace) a two-century long period when the Roman Empire was largely free from large-scale conflict.

The Ara Pacis ('Altar of Peace') was Augustus's way of declaring his commitment to peace. See the 'Altar of Peace', originally inaugurated in 9 BC and then buried for centuries, plus loads more as you walk right into living history.

Insider tip

Nearby Gusto (Piazza Augusto Imperatore 9) does a pretty fantastic aperitivo. Head there and get a faceful of delicious Italian snacks to go with your sunset wine.

Absolutely phenomenal! I’m a massive history nut and fan of Augustus and was so excited to see the Ara Pacis. The artefacts and information presented before the Ara Pacis were very insightful. I honestly felt that I learnt more from visiting this museum than I do studying a semester of Augustan history at university.
