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
Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful and renowned square in Rome. It was built by the Pamphili family; noble family of Rome intertwined with political and papal life in the period of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Pope Innocent X (Giovanni Battista Pamphilj, a member of the prestigious family) had the square built with a monumental style. Piazza Navona is one of the most important symbols of Baroque Rome. The square houses some artistic and architectural elements of great value. At the center of the square there is the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It represents the four corners of the earth: the Rio della Plata, the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube. Opposite the Bernini fountain is the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, a work by Francesco Borromini and Girolamo Rainaldi. Finally, the square also houses the Palazzo Pamphilj, a majestic work erected between 1644 and 1650 by Girolamo Rainaldi. The gallery, inside the palace, contains frescoes by Pietro da Cortona. Other prestigious buildings that surround the square are: Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo De Torres, Palazzo Tuccimei; all monumental buildings dedicated to ancient and influential Roman families. ...read
