The Ara Pacis Museum by the architect Richard Meier is the only important contemporary building that has been erected in the historic centre of Rome since the Second World War.
If you had lived in Rome 2000 years ago, you would be very, very old now. But also important, you would have been alive during the time of Augustus, the first Roman emperor (and grand-nephew of Julius Caesar).
His reign led to a period known as Pax Romana (Roman Peace), a two-century period in which the Roman Empire was largely free of major conflicts.
The Ara Pacis ("Altar of Peace") was Augustus' way of explaining his commitment to peace. See the "Altar of Peace", originally inaugurated in 9 BC and buried for centuries, and other burdens as you enter directly into living history.
