Foro App

Its origin is linked to the history of the Via Appia, the “Queen of Roads”, opened in 312 BC by the censor Appio Claudio to connect Rome to Capua.


The Sacred Writings remind us of St. Paul’s encounter with the Christian communities happened in Foro Appio (Act.Ap.XXXVIII). The magic of the place is subsequently realized by Valadier, great architect of Pope Braschi (Pius VI), which expands the original building complex realizing the building of three floors with cornices and string courses of great invoice. Centuries of history, dramatic and temporary rebirths, accompany Foro Appio up to our days, giving us a modern chapter of ancient history.
