The remains of the portico of the Roman Forum
This is the portico of the Roman Forum of Terracina, Italy. You can notice the remains of marble flooring and columns of the Emilian Forum Without doubt it is a particular monument as it keeps still today not only the ancient limestone paving as well as the original function of civil and religious centre of the town. Its name comes from Aulus Aemilius, the local magistrate who, between the end of the 1st century B.C. and the beginning of the 1st century A.D., ordered to pave the square and to engrave his own name on the stone blocks.
