The Pantheon is an ancient building located in the center of Rome. It was founded in 27 a.C. by the Roman politician, soldier and architect Marco Vipsanio Agrippa, son-in-law of the first Roman emperor, Augustus. We are in the Pigna district, in the heart of the historic center of the Eternal City. Originally built as a temple dedicated to all past, present and future deities. The Pantheon is today a Christian basilica, converted as such in the seventh century (with the edict of Constantinople). The Pantheon is today also called Santa Maria della Rotonda or Santa Maria ad Martyres. The building has a circular structure with a front portico in Corinthian columns (eight fronts and two groups of four in the second and third row) that support the large pediment that crowns the huge entrance façade. The Pantheon presents itself internally as a large circular cell, called round, with thick walls supported by eight large pillars on which the enormous hemispherical dome in concrete rests. At its apex the dome has a circular opening called the oculus, which allows the illumination of the interior of the building. The dome of the building is one of the largest in the world, and holds the record for being the largest built in non-reinforced concrete. The Pantheon records more than 7 million visitors each year. This site is the most visited Italian state museum site. ...read
The Roman Forum (Forum Romanum in Latin), or simply "the Forum", is an archaeological area of the city of Rome that attracts millions of visitors each year. The Forum sits among the Colosseum, Via dei Fori Imperiali, the Campidoglio, and the Palatine.

For centuries, the Velley of the Forum was the site of important events that have influenced the cultural, political, philosophical and juridical bases of Western thought. After periods of decline in ancient history (the Forum was even used as a pasture for cattle in certain periods), today the area of the Forum has been brought to light. Today it is a museum site, and with the Colosseum and the Palatine it is one of the most illustrious and visited archaeological sites in the world. The site attracts more than 6 million visitors each year. ...read
