A lot of european cities are cool like Rome but when you look at London & Paris no european counterparts to compete with.

The saying is: "only Rome is worthy of Paris; only Paris is worthy of Rome". I'll leave you to your deductions; Rome and Paris are still the most beautiful cities in the world.

Please this is a thread about construction and projects in Rome, see your off-topic post... We don't want this to be a city vs city battle, for which one is the most beautiful.. I think there's specific threads for that.

Who are you and why are you telling me what to do? This is not a city vs city battle, re-read what I wrote.

I respect your opinion and it's not a problem of beauties. Rome is a marvel for sure
Just when you look at $$$ investments and the ranking of most powerful cities :
http://www.citylab.com/work/2015/03/...l-city/386315/

You have an Alpha+ cities competition there.

Rome needs big reforms and change the way it is managed.The actual mayor cannot have a vision of grandeur when the finance are crippled by debts & mafia

The Mausoleum of Emperor Augustus will reopen to the public in April 2019

Rome's first emperor, Augustus, if he was still alive, would definitely appreciate it. The restoration on his tomb will be completed (at least) in April 2019. But the good news is that his Mausoleum will reopen to public!

The large tomb, which was built by the Roman Emperor in 28 BC in the area of Campus Martius and housed Augustus's ashes as well as those of the emperors of the Julio-Claudia dynasty (with the exception of Nero). During its millennial history Augustus's mausoleum has been also an amphitheater to host the "Giostra della Bufala" a spectacle similar to Spanish bullfights, and a stage for theatre performances used for banquets, circuses and various spectacles.













Now the City of Rome has launched the second phase of the recovery of this circular sepulchre thanks to a €6 million donation coming from an Italian telecommunications company. Conservative restoration work started on October 31, 2016 thanks to €4.27 million allocated by Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and the City of Rome.

It will not be an easy restoration: the building is around 45 metres high and almost 90 metres in diameter. Augustus's Mausoleum was far larger than Hadrian's (now known to us as "Castel Sant'Angelo") and was an imposing white marble cylinder, elegantly decorated and topped by a colossal bronze statue of Augustus, the marble copy of which is almost certainly the statue known as "Augustus of Prima Porta".




To give new life to the spaces around the monument, the site will be surrounded by a green area measuring approximately 300 linear metres on the east, north and west sides, allowing the public to immerse themselves in the history of Augustus and the Mausoleum.

The area will be bordered by a hoarding featuring gold coloured images and texts on a black background, telling of the life of Rome's first emperor and the various uses of the sepulchre over the centuries. Twelve lenticular printed panels and five hollow masks showing the face of Augustus add surprise and depth to the tale, giving the optical illusion of movement in the images depicted and a three-dimensional feel.

Finally, the hoarding space will be immersed in a musical atmosphere that will offer pieces taken from the repertoire of the program of excellence of the period of the Auditorium of Augustus. In addition to the special features on the hoarding, the Mausoleum will be lit up every day from dusk by 55 varying-sized LED modules which will provide light of various colours that can be changed, creating spellbinding images.

The past emerges again in Rome
Mini Pompeii found in Rome during metro line excavations

Excavations to finish metro Line C in Rome continue to throw up ancient Roman archeological finds. After a military barracks last year, the latest discovery is Pompeian buildings near the Aurelian Wall.

Archeologists were undertaking reinforcement works on monuments near the new public transport line when the ancient solarium was discovered, still in excellent condition, not far from metro station Amba Aradam in the capital, near the city's Aurelian Walls. The discovery came about as archeologists had descended to more than 10 metres below ground level to reinforce the Aurelian Walls, which lie near where the new public transport line is being extended.

The structure found has Pompeian qualities, according to the experts who discovered it, in that the solarium and adjacent structures were preserved thanks to a fire on site during the 3rd century AD. Archeological discoveries are not rare in Rome, although sites where wood is preserved are "extremely rare given the age of the site" according to a press release by the Ministry of Culture. Such well-preserved sites only occur thanks to exceptional climactic conditions or, equally rarely, in places such as Ercolano and Pompeii. Pompeii was destroyed by an eruption from Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79 and the city was preserved in volcanic ash.








The preservation of wooden parts, such as in the solarium recently discovered however, is unique for Rome as wood is only preserved over such a long period in exceptional circumstances, albeit carbonized. Frescoes and plaster fragments were also recovered at the site. Besides pieces of furniture, sculptures and windows, the skeleton of a dog was also found on the doorstep of the house, carbonized on impact during the fire.

Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology is set to undertake a study to determine whether seismic activity could have been the cause of the fire. One hypothesis suggests the structure was part of the aristocratic homes on the Caelian Hill, near where it was found, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. Archeologists have descended to 10 metres below ground level to assess the impact of the metro line works on ancient Roman monuments. Reinforcements will continue for another 4 metres still.

what's up in Rome recently?

Any news about new restorations ?

Maybe the walls and banks of Tiber river... it's ... a sewer right now to be honest... and it's sad.

Eternal city should not allow shame like this !
