All the obelisks in Rome are "original" (= egyptian!), you know italian people, they dont like "fakes"

Btw, out of 30 Egyptian obelisks in the world, only 7 obelisks are still in Egypt and 13 are in Rome.

Other obelisks are - in Paris, London, New York, Istanbul, Florence, Urbino (a small town in Central Italy), Catania (Sicily), Wimborne (a small town in Southern England), Arles (Southen France) and Caesarea (Israel), one obelisk respectively.

More than 13 aegyptian obelisks imported in Italy by Caesar Augusts (and another one is still in subsoil),
Roma has got 1 PIRAMID, built in the first century bC, when in Rome, after the Egypt conquest, and after the Caesar and Cleopatra, the last aegyptian pharaon, love affair, boomed the "aegyptian fashon".

So, this is the PIRAMIDE CESTIA, 37 m.

Thanks for this thread sts. i really missed Rome. i remember that parts of the city when i see some pics. when i was in Rome(in 2000) i feel my self very different. very romantic city with full of history. the most beatiful city in the world after my homecity
i have tons of Rome pics everywhere from Rome. but i need a good quality scanner for upload them. maybe i will add my Rome pics in the future, i hope
