Piazza Tre Martiri

Piazza Tre Martiri

Today the site is the square Piazza Tre Martiri which was dedicated to three young Parisians killed by Nazis towards the end of Second World War. The modern piazza, recently restored, was the Roman setting for the speech Julius Caesar gave to his legionaries immediately after crossing the Rubicon in 49 BC when he exhorted them to follow him to Rome.

This site shows part of the paving of the Forum from the Imperial Roman period. The blocks of San Marino limestone are laid with great precision, following the same directions as the city's two main streets. The brickwork structure is a remnant of one of the many monuments erected to embellish this public square, and is part of a large base once faced with marble, on which statues and other celebrative figures could be placed. In the Forum there were four other platforms similar to this one. In the paving stones there are several cavities used to fix other decorative architectural elements.
