  Arco di Traiano
by egicom05

It's one of the most beautiful triumphal roman arch existing in Italy, richer and good preserved.It is tall more than 15 metres and all marble covered.It was build between 114 and 117 b.C.from the emperor Traiano,from who takes name, to celebrate The Appia street opening.The sides shows different historical reliefs to remember the relation between Traiano and Sannio people. During some excavation works had been found interesting roman walls and the old paved street that started to the town of Brindisi. On it there?s an important memorial epigraph to the same emperor.
