Rome, Forum Romanum

The Forum Romanum was the centre of life in imperial Rome, evidenced by the many remains of triumphal arches, temples and basilicas. Until 509 BC, when Rome became a republic, the city was reined by an Etruscan dynasty of Tarquin Kings, who built the Forum for processions, elections, Senate assembly. Three triumphal arches were built on the forum, also a Temple for gods like Saturn, Vespasian, Titus and Vesta. Although several basilicas like basilica Julia or basilica Aemilia can be found. Today, the Forum Romanum can look like a disorderly collection of ruins from different periods.
