Palatine Hill: imperial palace of the emperor Domitian (51-96 AD). It is still uncertain the precise function of this large building, also known as Domitian's stadium (Stadio di Domiziano) or "Circus Agonalis". The stadium was part of the imperial palace and was surrounded by a two-story portico.
I'm going to tell you something less know about the bronze statue of Maurcus Aurelius in Rome at Capitoline Hill in the Piazza del Campidoglio.

The most famous and tragic love story in Rome: the passionate love story between Raphael and Margherita Luti, knew under the nickname of Fornarina (the baker's daughter). Fornarina ispired several Raphael's paintings. It was a short and strong love with a tragic end. After a long night of passion, Raphael contracted fever.
Piazza Elio Callistio until the 50s of the last century, was named chair of the Devil. Actuallythe same hinabitants changed the name, tired of living in a place whit this name so evil! Today some of them have even lost their memory of the original function of this monument by the ominous name.
