Rome's birthday

Today is the city of Rome’s 2759th birthday. It was celebrated with the re-opening of the Ara Pacis Museum in its new home, designed by American architect Richard Meier. The Ara Pacis still looms large in the city’s historical imagination. It is also the first building to be built in a contemporary style in the city’s ‘centro storico’ for a long time. Happy birthday to Rome, and congratulations on the new museum!
