VIAGGIO NEI FORI - 2 storie e 2 percorsi a cura di Piero Angela e Paco Lanciano
FORUM OF AUGUSTUS While spacing on various aspects of the Roman world, the story is still anchored to the site of Augustus, creatively using the remains of the Forum to try to let the stones “speak” for themselves. Besides the faithful reconstruction of the area, with special effects of all kinds, the story focuses on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, over 12 meters high, dominated the area next to the temple. A new period of Roman history started under Augustus: as a matter of fact the imperial age was one of great achievement, within a century Rome ruled over an empire which extended from current England to the borders of the modern Iraq, including most of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. These achievements led to the expansion not only of the empire, but also of culture, technologies, legal rules, art. Traces of that past are still visible in all parts of the Empire, with amphitheaters, baths, libraries, temples, roads. Besides, after Augustus many other emperors left their mark in the Imperial Fora building their own Forum. Rome at that time had more than one million inhabitants: no city in the world had ever had a population of those proportions; only London in the XIX century reached that size. It was the great metropolis of antiquity: the capital of economics, law, power and entertainment. Through special audio systems with headphones the spectators will listen to music, special effects and the story narrated by Piero Angela in 8 languages (Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish and Japanese, German and Chinese). The spectators will be accompanied by the voice of Piero Angela and by some amazing videos and reconstructions that show places as they looked like at the time of Augustus: a thrilling representation which combines historical and scientific rigor with entertainment. While spacing on various aspects of the Roman world, the story is still anchored to the site of Augustus, creatively using the remains of the Forum to try to let the stones “speak” for themselves. Besides the faithful reconstruction of the area, with special effects of all kinds, the story focuses on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, over 12 meters high, dominated the area next to the temple. FORUM OF CAESAR The story narrated by Piero Angela, accompanied by reconstructions and videos, starts from the history of the excavations made for the construction of Via dei Fori Imperiali, when an “army” of 1,500 construction workers were mobilized in an unprecedented work: razing to the ground an entire neighborhood and digging out the area until the level of ancient Rome was reached. Thus the story starts from the remains of the majestic Temple of Venus, built by Julius Caesar after his victory over Pompey, to lead the spectators into the excitement of the daily life in Ancient Rome, when officials, plebeians, militaries, matrons, consuls and senators strolled under the arches of the Forum. Ancient taberne reapper among these colonnades, they were used as offices and shops of the Forum and, among these, of particular interest is the shop of a nummulario, a sort of currency exchange point of the timeThere was also a large public toilet of which there are curious remains. The visit seeks to evoke the role of the Forum in the life of the Romans but also the figure of Julius Caesar. To accomplish this great work, Caesar had to expropriate and demolish an entire neighborhood, at the total cost of 100 million gold coins, the equivalent of at least 300 million euros. Caesar also wanted that the new headquarters of the Roman Senate, the Curia, was built right next to his court. A building that still exists and that, through a virtual reconstruction, you can review as it appeared at that time. In those years, while the power of Rome grew dramatically, the Senate was very weakened and it was in this situation of internal crisis that Caesar was able to get special and perpetual political power. Through the story narrated by Piero Angela spectators will get to know more about this intelligent and ambitious man, idolized by some, hated and feared by others. Through special audio systems with headphones the spectators will listen to music, special effects and the story narrated by Piero Angela in 8 languages (Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish and Japanese, German and Chinese). The story narrated by Piero Angela is accompanied by some amazing videos and reconstructions. To watch the traveling show at the Forum of Caesar, the access will be through the staircase located near the Trajan’s Column. To reach the Forum of Caesar the public will pass through the Forum of Trajan on a walkway and under the underground tunnel of the Imperial Fora, opened for the first time after the excavations of the last century. The visit seeks to evoke the role of the Forum in the life of the Romans but also the figure of Julius Caesar.

LA LUNA AL FORO ROMANO
On the 22nd of April the fascinating path at the Roman Forum opens every friday during nighttime from 20:15 to 24:00 with guided visits (last entry at 22:45). The itinerary starts at the Basilica Emilia, built in 179 BC where all activities of the Forum where held, in a covered space, during bad weather conditions. From here the lights show the row of colums who divide the space of the basilica perfectly. The intinerary continues to the right towards the Temple of Divo Giulio and leads to the impressive building of the Curia Julia, seat of the Roman Senate. The tour passes in front of the church S. Maria Antiqua, reopened for public after 30 years and where unique paintings from the Christian world of the first millennium are shown, dating from the sixth to the ninth century. Then the visit turns to the Via Sacra to reach the Arch of Titus while passing by the Temple of Antonino and Faustina, constructed in 141 AD. The restoration revealed the beauty of the six huge marble columns, 17 meters high.

PIER LUIGI NERVI - ARCHITETTURE PER LO SPORT
This exhibition features a host of drawings, photographs, documents and models from over 60 projects for sports facilities, much of drawn from the Nervi Archive in the MAXXI Architettura collections. A unique opportunity to examine the development of the design and constructional methods of the engineer from the first works such as the Stadio Berta in Florence to the buildings for the 1960 Rome Olympics and through to the great international projects such as the Kuwait Sports Centre. Three-dimensional graphic presentations and constructional models realised by La-Mo and LaMoViDA of the University of Bolognas enrich as section devoted to the projects for stadia in Italy and abroad. Also on show is a special model in Plexiglas of the Palazzetto dello Sport made by two students from the ISIA, the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche (Rome), Aureliano Capri and Elettra Renzi, revealing the system for distributing forces conceived by Nervi for the building. This model constitutes a central element in a series of guided visits devoted to Nervi’s work that also include a “tactile” route designed for blind and partially-sighted people. Realised in collaboration the Centro Regionale Sant’Alessio, the route involves a walk around the Palazzetto dello Sport introducing participants to the built structure and an exhibition visit facilitated by the model and tactile tables.

L'arma per l'arte e la legalità
A Palazzo Barberini apre la mostra L’Arma per l’Arte e la Legalità, nata dalla collaborazione tra il Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo – Direzione generale Musei e Galleria nazionale di Arte antica, l’Arma dei Carabinieri e l’Università di Roma Tre. La mostra, visitabile fino al 30 ottobre ad ingresso gratuito, si propone di comunicare al pubblico il ruolo fondamentale dell’Arma dei Carabinieri nella tutela dei beni culturali. Il linguaggio passa attraverso due livelli: quello visuale ed emotivo e quello informativo razionale. Il percorso guida il visitatore nell’approfondimento del valore storico, artistico, archeologico e contestuale delle oltre cento opere esposte per un arco cronologico di più di tre millenni: dai bronzetti nuragici dell’età del Bronzo fino a un disegno di Modigliani. Allo stesso tempo, la mostra offre la possibilità di conoscere la storia spesso affascinante e avvincente del recupero di beni culturali, per comprendere il danno prodotto dal traffico illecito e l’importanza dell’azione di tutela. Il progetto espositivo, curato dalla Direzione generale Musei, alterna suggestioni e provocazioni: accosta le armi del delitto (metal detector, taglierini, piedi di porco e altri strumenti dei “predatori dell’arte”) alle opere recuperate, rievoca il deposito dei trafficanti o, semplicemente, gioca visivamente con il buio e con la luce, per manifestare la transizione dal caos all’ordine del ripristino della legalità e del contesto. Un ritorno alla luce che è lo scopo e la morale dell’azione quotidiana di tutela svolta dal Comando Carabinieri per la Tutela del Patrimonio Culturale in seno al Ministero dei beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo, di cui questa mostra offre il saggio più ampio e completo che sia stato finora mai dato. Tra le importanti opere in mostra: la straordinaria scultura raffigurante Mitra che uccide il toro proveniente da Tarquinia; la “Betsabea al Bagno” di Jacopo Zucchi, trafugata durante il secondo conflitto mondiale e restituita all’Italia soltanto nel 1998; l’idria etrusca attribuita al Pittore di Micali della fine del VI secolo a.C.; il cratere attico con scene dionisiache attribuito al pittore di Methyse; la scultura in marmo romana raffigurante Arianna dormiente; la celebre lettera a stampa di Cristoforo Colombo del 1493 e una piccola selezione dei 5631 reperti recuperati con l’Operazione Teseo (il più grande sequestro sinora effettuato dal Comando). In mostra anche pitture preromane di provenienza campana, pompeiane e medievali, e quadri di varia epoca e provenienza: da Reni a Ligabue, dal Guercino a Van Gogh, di cui spicca la celebre “Arlesienne”, trafugata nel 1998 dalla Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna di Roma e quasi subito recuperata dai Carabinieri del Nucleo Tutela.
