What people say

"The Temple of Hadrian, also known as the Temple of Hadrian and Vibia Sabina, is an ancient Roman temple located in the Campo Marzio (Field of Mars) area of Rome, Italy. It was built in the 2nd century AD by Emperor Antoninus Pius to honor his predecessor, Hadrian, and his wife Vibia Sabina, who were both deified after their deaths. History and Architecture: Construction of the temple began in 135 AD and was completed around 145 AD. It was dedicated to Hadrian, who was deified after his death in 138 AD, and his wife Vibia Sabina, deified after her death in 136 AD. The temple was Corinthian in style, featuring a facade with eight columns on the short sides and thirteen columns on the long sides. The temple was richly decorated with statues, friezes, and reliefs, some of which can still be seen today. A surrounding enclosure with columns of yellow antique marble surrounded the temple. Remaining Parts and Recognition: The temple was heavily damaged over the centuries, and today only eleven columns from the facade and part of the podium remain. These remnants are incorporated into a 17th-century building designed by Carlo Fontana. The Temple of Hadrian was declared a national monument of Italy in 1902."
"DO NOT MISS: Inside the Sala delle Grida of the former Stock Exchange, you can witness the spectacular journey through time, thanks to Hadrianeum, the 22-minute video made by scientific popularizer Paco Lanciano, and live an immersive experience in Ancient Rome. Hadrianeum is an actual immersive projection on the floor, walls, and ceiling that makes you retrace the events that have taken place in the temple and the surrounding area, a mirror of the overall evolution of the city of Rome. An original projection system gives you the illusion of flying over the city in different eras and moving within monuments, palaces, churches, and squares. A narrator accompanies you in the story, thanks to an audio guide in eight languages."
