st. peters interior / Richard Meier museum

as we got a new pope franziskus I. i'd like to show some pics of st. peters today





the holiness



the widest dome in the world!





angel's fortress




supreme court of cassation



ara pacis museum next to river tiber , designed by Richard Meier



The altar was relocated from the Campo Marzio in 1938 during the Mussolini era, and a system of regulating lines was applied to the project to relate the altar’s present position to its original site. Bisecting the distance between the present center of the mausoleum and the original site yielded a four-square urban grid that was used as a proportional frame to reorganize the piazza and its surroundings. An artificial obelisk is used as a historical reference on the north-south axis through the altar.







obelisk of piazza del popolo , plaza of the people

E.U.R. District - South Rome

EUR is a residential and business district in Rome, located south of the city centre. The area was originally chosen in 1930s as the site for the 1942 world's fair which Benito Mussolini planned to open to celebrate twenty years of Fascism; the letters EUR standing for Esposizione Universale Roma.

EUR was almost fully completed for the 1960 Olympics, held in Rome.



When i was in Rome for the first time in 2006 i missed this impressive district unfortunately , because we didn't know anything about it.



highrises in rome .





some axes of the district













some models in the building above, called Museo della Civiltā Romana





city model



this is how rome looked like in former times with Forum Romanum on the left, quite impressive!

Thank you for your great photos

This is not the parliament building, it's the seat of the "supreme court of cassation" (hope the translation is correct ).

grandious! the city is practically a museum by itself, the churches, the cathedrals, the fountains, government buildings, bridges and of course, the colloseum and the Roman Forum.

the city of Rome is a grand museum by itself- the churches, cathedrals, fountains, the piazzas, the colloseum, the Roman forum and the buildings in general which were built in different ages and eras.
