The Colosseum, originally called Amphitheatrum Flavium, is the biggest amphitheater in the world and it's located in the center of Rome, the capital city of Italy.
"As long as the Coliseum exists, Rome will exist; when the Colosseum falls, Rome will also fall; when Rome falls, the world will fall too." These famous words were pronounced by an English monk, whose name was Bede Venerabilis, in the 8th century AD. And it was also him the first person to call this building the Colosseum.
The Romans called it instead the Flavian Amphitheatre. This name building owes to the ruling family who built it, the Flavian. The Emperor Vespasian, the first of the emperors of this family, built the most famous monument which became after also one of the most visited in whole the world.
The Basilica of Saint Mary Major is one of the four papal basilicas of Rome.
The church was built on the top of Esquiline hill, because of a dream of a Pope. In the night, Pope Liberius was visited by an angel who told him to build a church on the place where snow would fall the next day. It was the month of August, and snow doesn't normally fall at that time of the year. But the Pope woke up and saw the snow falling down on the top of the hill. So he decided to build the church there. It was the 4th century. Every year this event is celebrating on the 5th of August.
The bell tower is a Romanesque piece from the 14th century. The facade is a mix of baroque and medieval architecture. If you stand in front of it, you'll see that a newer baroque facade is built around the medieval one.
The Roman Forum once was the heart of ancient Rome. This was the place where the most important buildings of Rome were built. The political and social center, it all started as the main market square of the city, the Forum Magnum.
For years remained the center of political and public life, the site of triumphal processions, criminal trials and gladiatorial matches. The statues placed here commemorated the Rome's great men. The Forum has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world and all the history.
Located in the small valley between the Capitoline and Palatine Hills, the Roman Forum today is a sprawling ruin of architectural fragments and intermittent archaeological excavations. Today of most buildings only the foundations are left.
