Prepare yourself for a magical and experential journey through Roman history.
Caesar and Augustus. Caesar versus Augustus. A place of honor in Roman history.
Two different stories and two different routes. Forum of Augustus and Forum of Caesar. Prepare yourself to an exclusive and unusual walk through Ancient Rome. The stones will “speak” for themselves and will bring you in contact with ancient time.
Let yourself get carried away in this magical and mystical experience. Thanks to a state-of-the art multi-language audio system, you will hear a commentary of the greatest Italian historian of all time, Piero Angela, and admire some videos and amazing reconstructions that show places as they looked in the time of the Roman Emperors.
When you talk about these two historical characters you cannot counterpose them. Different in everything: in physics, in character, in education, in the development of life. It never happened that two men belonging to the same family strain (gens Aurelia) succeeded in giving, with so different criteria, the greatest historical creation the world had seen.
To the great and mighty genius of Caesar, it gives continuity Augusto’s wisdom, constancy, ductility and balance. Both of them, however, share in the ultimate purpose the salvation and perpetuity of Rome’s mission. In this work, they maintain an extraordinary moral tension, a fund of mysticism, common in all the great spirits. Both had seen the state’s inadequacies and maladies; their diagnosis coincided perfectly. Deeply different was the cure.
Caesar always worked alone, as a solitary navigator, he was head of Rome for only a few months and died tragically. Augusto believed in the team game, he knew he was the director, he was head of Rome for 57 years and died of a serene old age in his wife’s arms.
No intellect was as brilliant as that of Caesar, but the palm of the best statesman goes to Ottaviano Augusto laying the foundations of a stable imperial structure that greatly influenced the West and humanity.
Both are told in their heroic gestures in the “Viaggi nei Fori”, an initiative by the City of Rome. The Imperial Forums comes alive thanks to Caesar and Augustus.
