Ancient Rome light shows by night at Forum of Augustus and Forum of Caesar

Multimedia light shows conjure up ancient Rome by night.

The history of ancient Rome comes to life thanks to the Viaggi nei Fori project, a multimedia display screened on the ruins of the Forum of Augustus and Forum of Caesar, each evening from 10 June until 2 October 2022.

Created by Piero Angela and Paco Lanciano, the show uses light, images, film and animation to conjure up portrayals of life in ancient Rome, watched from elevated seats alongside Via dei Fori Imperiali.

Taking as its base the existing marble columns and ruins, the shows use cutting-edge technology to reconstruct the forum areas as they were in imperial times.

In addition to providing a spectacle with visual and audio special effects, the shows are backed up with commentary available in eight languages: Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish, German, Chinese and Japanese.


Tickets can be pre-purchased online on the website or via the call centre, tel. 060608 (active every day 09.00-19.00). The tickets can also be purchased on site and at tourist info-points.

Full ticket price for each show €15 or combined ticket for both shows €25.
