Rome has never been so beautiful: light shows at Roman Forum of August and Caesar, only available fo
Two outdoor spectacles with music, light projections and historical commentary will be held at the Forum of Caesar and the Forum of Augustus every night from 22 April until 30 October.
Titled Viaggio nell’antica Roma, the shows take viewers on a journey back to ancient Rome and can be enjoyed separately for €15 or combined for €25.
Viaggio nei Fori -a journey through the Forums - takes viewers back nearly 2,000 years to the formation of the Roman Empire by its first emperor, Augustus. By the end of his life, Augustus’s empire stretched from England to the borders of modern day Iraq – including most of Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East.
Viewers will see the forum reconstructed through projection light technology and will receive portable headsets to hear Italian television host and science journalist Piero Angela narrate the world as it was two millennia ago at the dawn of the Roman Empire. The pre-recorded narration comes in eight different languages: English, Italian, French, Spanish, German, Chinese and Japanese.
Just a five-minute walk away lies the Forum of Caesar – a new addition to the projection light show series this year this year, the experience gives visitors unrivaled access and insight into the forum named for perhaps the most famous of Rome’s Emperors.
Opened for the first time since century-long excavations, the Forum of Caesar light show starts in the Temple of Venus, a magnificent structure built by Caesar after his victory over Pompeii. The projection lights and audio guide help visitors imagine what life was like as a Roman in these times – bustling through the large forum on their way to the public toilets,nummulario or Senate building.
This is truly the best experience you can have in Rome, to really immerse yourself in the Ancient Empire.... Fantastica Italia can make it happen!!
