The Museum of the Ara Pacis (Museo dell'Ara Pacis)

The building, designed by architect Richard Meier, was opened to the public on April 21, 2006, the date of the foundation of Rome. The museum is the first great architectural intervention in the historic centre of Rome since the Fascist era. The white colour of structure clearly allude to the style of imperial Rome. It hosts the Ara Pacis of Augustus, inaugurated on January 30, 9 BC.
Address: Lungotevere in Augusta, Rome

    L'Altare della Pace è una delle più significative testimonianze dell'arte augustea. Simboleggia pace e prosperità.

    Piccolo... ma splendido! Un tuffo nel passato per un'archeologa "mancata" come me..

    It's a relief that Augustus' great monument has finally been liberated after years hidden beneath scaffolding: its Luna marble glows in architect Richard Meier's luminous space.
