One is entitled "Keys to Rome. The City of August", open until the 12 April 2015 at the "Trajan's Market" or "Museo dei Fori Imperiali", the most extraordinary place of the ancient Rome! (few steps from Piazza Venezia). In the time of Augustus it was the administration centre of the "Emperial Fora", the hearth of the Eternal City. There, in the middle of so many fragments of sculptures, of refined bas-relief's details and other architectural decorations found in the ruins of the Emperial Fora, you can discover the Rome of Augustus also through multimedia installations.
For instance, thanks to the "revealing flashlight", you can see how the ancient Rome was not at all marble-white but, on the contrary, very coloured. Not only outside but also inside the houses, though in a much more delicate way.
Livia was the wife of Augustus, the third, after two divorces, but the most important one. At the Palazzo Massimo, you can also visit the exhibition "The revolution of Augustus" (until the 10th may 2015). The emperor changed completely the calendar of the Romans, introducing new festivities that were no more linked only with gods but with him, the "Pontifex Maximus", as he is represented in a famous sculpture that is part of Palazzo Massimo's collection.
On his death's bed, after a very long reign, from 27BC until his death, the 19 August (a month called so in his honour!) 14 AD, the old Emperor said: "I found a Rome of bricks, I leave you one of marble" And it wasn't an exaggeration at all! That was the golden age of Pax, Pietas and Concordia.
