Now through November, visitors in Rome can experience the city in a new light, thanks to a new immersive theater experience, Journeys through Ancient Rome, curated by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano. The outdoor multimedia show illuminates the Forum of Augustus like you’ve never seen it before, mixing lights, images, films, and animations, all narrated by Piero Angela.
The show focuses on the marble figure of Augustus, a giant statue 12 meters high, located in the temple dedicated to Mars Ultor. Augustus brought Ancient Rome into a new imperial age, and presided over extraordinary wealth. Thanks to his reign, the Roman Empire extended as from what we now consider England all the way to Iraq, with portions of the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa all within its power. This massive Empire of more than a million citizens was the foundation of Ancient Roman civilization, which we know today made up incredible culture, technology, legal history, and art. All throughout Europe, and especially in the streets of Rome, pieces of this history still remain: amphitheaters, baths, libraries, temples, and architecture.
The show, played from the grandstand in via Alessandria, is available in 8 languages, and runs for approximately 40 minutes. Expect a socially-distant viewing experience, with Covid-19 safety protocols in place to protect you and those around you.
The project is promoted by Roma Culture, the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali and produced by Zètema Progetto Cultura. Conceived and edited by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano with the historic collaboration of Gaetano Capasso and with the Scientific Direction of the Sovrintendenza Capitolina.
