Piazza Di Pietra

Posted by
Sarito (Basingstoke, United Kingdom) on 18 November 2009 in Architecture.

The great importance which the ancient Romans gave to the Campus Martius becomes clear in this small Piazza di Pietra. Here you can see what remains of the great temple dedicated to Hadrian and erected by his son and heir Antoninus Pius. Built in 145 AD, the temple was in the center of a colonnaded piazza - http://www.romaviva.com/Pantheon/piazza_pietra_hadrian_temple.htm
