At only 10 meters distance from the house you can find a well-stocked supermarket and many historical bars such as “Caffè della Pace” as well as a wide selection of high-quality restaurants, inns, trattorias and pizzerias where you will enjoy the typical Roman atmosphere. The Bramante’s Cloister, Navona Square, Pantheon, Campo de’ Fiori and St. Angel’s Castle, S. Peter are only few of the many popular tourist attractions surrounding this area.
Maggiore in Italian means greater, but the name given to the gate is not related to its size; it is thought to be a contraction of Porta di S. Maria Maggiore because it ...
show more allowed direct access to that basilica; others suggest it was a reference to Aula Majoris, a large hall of the nearby palace of St. Helena (today partly occupied by S. Croce in Gerusalemme). The gate was also known as Porta di S. Croce.
In 1838 Pope Gregory XVI decided to free the monumental arches of the aqueduct from later additions; the remaining fortifications were pulled down after the unification of Italy and in 1956 the ground was brought back to its original level.
Three lengthy inscriptions describe the completion of the aqueduct by Emperor Claudius and its restoration by Emperors Vespasian and his son Titus. An interesting aspect of the inscriptions is that they show the coexistence of republican institutions with the growing power of the emperors.
In the first inscription Claudius was described as:
TI. CLAUDIUS DRUSI F. CAISAR AUGUSTUS GERMANICUS PONTIF. MAXIM. TRIBUNICIA POTESTATE XII COS. V IMPERATOR XXVII PATER PATRIAE ..
his name and the references to his family were followed by Germanicus, a title given to him for war victories, and by a series of "positions" he held in the frame of the republican institutions: pontifex maximus, tribune of the people, consul, imperator and father of the nation; the numbers say how many times he was tribune and consul or was acclaimed imperator.
The inscription for Vespasian starts as follows:
IMP. CAESAR VESPASIANUS AUGUST. followed by the reference to the positions he held.
Finally the inscription for Titus begins with:
IMP. T(itus). CAESAR DIVI F. VESPASIANUS.
In these cases the title of imperator was emphasized by being directly associated with Vespasian and Titus.
