The Forum Magnum Is A Reminder Of The Glorious Contributions Of The Romans To Every Field
The Forum Magnum or the Forum or the Roman Forum was the center of all forms of activity in all different fields and fora. It was the centre of political activity sponsored by the incumbent politicians of the time, and it hosted the rituals current in the civilization at that time. This was where everyone, ranging from politicians to prostitutes gathered to discuss issues of everyday importance.
From the archaeological point of view, the Forum is probably the most important structure ever constructed. From the social point of view, the Forum has witnessed gatherings and celebrations, there have been speeches delivered to throngs of crowds and there have even been public trials of criminals conducted here.
Once upon a time, several statues lined up the Forum. The city's great heroes were captured in the form of marble and stone by sculptors of the era. Today, the Forum attracts a total of about 4.5 million tourists every year by virtue of the ruins.
The forum hosted many of the temples of gods the ancient Roman civilization worshipped. There is the Temple of Saturn besides other temples in the ruins.
Shops and commercial outlets were present in the days gone by too, and their remains can be seen in the Forum. There are relics of Termopollia, which is known as a fast-food outlet today. The Forum was where all the excitement in the city bred and lived. The Forum assumed the venue of celebrations only in the days of Caesar. Rome was the heart of a great successful civilisation, the Roman civilisation at that time.
