The Forum was the centre of the political, social, religious and economic life of Rome. It contained the main temples, religious buildings and the headquarters of political activity. It was the theatre of the most important historical events that characterised Roman history. We still have remains of many buildings including the Basilica Emilia, the Basilica Giulia, the Temple of Saturn, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Antonino and Faustina and the Arches of Augustus and Settimio Severo. Next to the archaeological area of the Roman Forum, the most famous monument of Roman antiquity stands out: The Colosseum. It was built by the wish of Vespasiano Emperor, it is the largest amphitheatre ever built, in which not only the famous gladiator fights took place, but also naval battles and great theatrical performances.
