The Forum of Caesar was the first of the Imperial forums and joins the Roman Forum. Gaius Julius Caesar consecrated it on September 26 of the year 46 BC. One and a half years before his murder. It was built because the Roman Forum was no longer sufficient for the business and administration of ancient Rome.
The well-known scientist and television author Piero Angela has produced this impressive multimedia show. In the forum of Caesar, he uses multimedia techniques to resurrect Roman life in the time of Caesar. The show begins with the documentation of the excavations carried out in the 1920s as part of the construction of Via dei Fori Imperiali. The show describes the Temple of Venus commissioned by Caesar and shows the importance of the forums for Roman life.
