Last night in Rome I had the wonderful chance to admire a special preview of a great show: the new LED lights system for the ancient Forum area, as shown in this photo-gallery. But there is also a great new: every Friday night, from tomorrow April 22 to end of October, the Roman Forum opens to the public. The monuments and the ruins will be illuminated thanks to the new system provided by Acea and so they will be accessible in summer through guided tours. “The moon at the Forum” is the title of the project added to the already existing “The moon at the Colosseum”, as part of initiatives for the founding of Rome. The visits (from 8 pm to midnight, groups of maximum 25 participants) provide a 75-minutes picturesque journey along the Via Sacra, the Via Nova, the Arch of Septimius Severus and to the monuments of ancient Rome.
