Ancient Rome light shows by night at the Forum of Caesar

Multimedia light shows conjure up ancient Rome by night.

Ancient Rome comes to life thanks to the Viaggio nel Foro di Cesare project, a multimedia display screened at the Forum of Caesar every night from 22 May until 22 September.

Created by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano, the show uses videomapping technology Vto conjure up portrayals of life in Rome at the time of Julius Caesar.

It also includes archive footage of the demolitions and excavations carried out between 1924 and 1932 to make way for the then Via dell'Impero (today Via dei Fori Imperiali).

The Viaggio nel Foro experience lasts about 50 minutes and is in the form of a walking tour.

Spectators enter the archaeological area via the steps near the base of Trajan's Column (there is a lift for disabled visitors) before making their way through a tunnel under Via dei Fori Imperiali to the Forum of Caesar.

In addition to providing a spectacle with visual and audio special effects, the shows are accompanied by commentary available in eight languages: Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish, German, Chinese and Japanese.
