L’Arco di Tito… The Arch of Titus.
Just got back from Rome last week-end and I can’t stop dreaming of that beautiful city and all its architectural, cultural and artistic treasures.
One of the many symbols of the beautiful Rome, the Eternal City. The Arch of Titus was built during the first century AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian after the death of his brother Titus. Since then, many architectural works were based of this model, the most famous being the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, built in 1836.
The inscription says: “Senatvs Popvlvs Qve Romanvs Divo Tito Divi Vespasiani F Vespasiano Avgvsto”, which means “The Roman Senate and People, to the divine Titus Vespasianus Augustus, son of the divine Vespasian”.
It is situated on the antique Via Sacra, just south-east of the Roman Forum.
