Forum of Augustus 2000 years later. A journey through history: the multimedia show returns with films and reconstructions that will show the places as they appeared at the time of Augustus.
The conquests brought the expansion not only of an empire, but also of a great civilization made of culture, technology, juridical rules, art. Traces of that past still remain in all areas of the Empire, with amphitheaters, baths, libraries, temples, streets.
Rome at that time had more than one million inhabitants: no city in the world had ever had a population of those proportions; only London in the 800 has reached these dimensions. It was the great metropolis of antiquity: the capital of the economy, law, power and entertainment.
