New Lighting System Highlights Magic of Roman Forum at Night

When you visit Rome, make sure you walk by the Roman Forum at night: the new lighting system designed by Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro and his daughter Francesca was inaugurated at the end of April and is a must-see!

The lighting system encompasses the forums of Augustus, Nerva and Trajan and has been described as a "wave of light rising from the Earth, wrapping the Temple of Mars Ultor with great intensity and then, gradually attenuating, rising from the bottom to the top to embrace the entire perimeter of the wall that delineates the Forum of Augustus”.
