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

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.
