ROME TRAIANO MARKET: in the imperial forums in Rome, Piazza Venezia is only 200 meters away,
Trajan’s Markets is now open to visitors, after being closed for many years because under restoration. This complex once housed 170 shops on 6 levels, plus a covered market. Commissioned in 100 AD. from Trajan, the brilliant emperor of Rome (from 98 to 117 AD) brought the Roman Empire to its peak.

Apollodorus of Damascus, the architect of Trajan, revolutionized architecture by adding vaults resting on pillars under a long central barrel roof; this made possible tall windows, which for the first time in history brought daylight into a vast interior space. The semicircular complex and the adjacent forum remained in use until the Middle Ages. The military skill of Trajan is testified in the monumental column of the Trajan Forum (the white marble bas-relief of the column, one of the greatest heritages of antiquity, describes the victory of the general over the gold-rich Dacians).

Take the wide staircase that goes down between the buildings. At the bottom of the stairs, you will find yourself in the Trajan’s Forum, the largest of all the holes, literally at the foot of the beautifully restored Trajan’s Column, a corkscrew-shaped structure in white marble with a cartoon narrative carved in bas-relief depicting the exploits of

Trajan. His statue remained at the top of the column until 1587, when replaced with St. Peter’s.

Born in Spain, Trajan reigned from 98 to 117 AD. He was an exceptional general and governor, builder and conqueror, extended the Roman Empire to its most remote borders, and had compassion for Christians. In the Middle Ages, the cult among Christian followers was so strong that many of them were buried at the foot of his column. A legend of the time tells that there was the skull of Trajan at the base of his column with the tongue intact. During the late Middle Ages, the column was used as a bell tower for the Church of San Niccolò de Columna, which has long since disappeared.

The ancient Romans were great engineers and designers whose theories on architecture were set out in a treatise written by Vitruvius Pollio around 25 BC. The Romans, as builders for the public, mastered the manufacture of concrete, the construction of the arches (which allowed their roads to cross large rivers and allowed water to flow along

the aqueducts), and the structure of the vault (which could contain numerous gathering places; until the Romans, all the roofs were flat).
The beautifully restored Trajan’s Column is located right on the east side of Piazza Venezia between the Imperial Forums, Forums, and Trajan’s Market. It is believed that the sculptural representation of Trajan’s military exploits against the Dacians (i.e., modern Romanians), illustrated on a twisted cartouche with 2,500 figures carved in marble bas-relief like a beautiful cartoon, was made in 113 AD. from the drawings of Apollodorus. They also designed the nearby commercial and multi-story business center of Trajan (the Mercati Traiano) and the Basilica Ulpia, a temple inside the Forum of Trajan. Just 4 years later, in 117, Apollodorus was banished from Rome and then executed by Hadrian, Trajan’s envious successor. Trajan was the brilliant military leader who led the Roman Empire to its farthest reaches in the world, and his ashes are buried in a Golden urn at the base of the column.
