"When I returned to Rome from Gaul and from Spain, in the consulship of Tiberius Nero and Publius Quintilio, having brought to a satisfactory finish my works in these provinces, the Senate decreed that there should be consecrated in the Field of Mars an altar to the Augustan Peace and ordered that the officials, priests and vestal virgins should celebrate a sacrifice at it every year.

The new museum complex for the Ara Pacis was designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, an architectural studio in the United States, which has been responsible for several of the most notable museums of the second half of the twentieth century. The building work for the project was awarded to the Italian company Marie Engineering and was overseen, for the Municipal Administration, by the Government Office of Cultural Assets and the Office of the Historic City.

The Virtual Tour of the Ara Pacis Museum – produced by​​ Zètema Progetto Cultura - developed by Gebsoftware using the Immersive Virtual Reality technology through sophisticated processing techniques and photo montage. You can visit the museum by taking a virtual walk, getting around the halls. With the mouse the view can be rotated 360 degrees left and right, up and down, and zoom in and out, as well as learn more about the museum using photo and video galleries.

Тем не менее, когда я вернулся и был всеми расспрошен, что хорошего в Риме, – как ты считаешь, можно ли было в ответ доложить, что из всех красот только и имеется в натуре, что бараны между руин и руины между баранов? Мне бы даже не поверили. Умберто Эко.
