Italy - Rome - Piazza del popolo



Mar. 2012

Many obelisks can be found in Rome. Some were originally made in Egypt and brought to Rome about 2000 years ago. Some others were made in Rome and copied from egyptian ones, or made in Egypt by romans. By visiting Rome, you'll see them at every square. This one, shot at the Piazza del Popolo, was made in Egypt and brought to Rome 10 BC. The lions were added in 1818.
De nombreux obélisques peuvent être vus à Rome. Certains ont été faits en Egypte il y a environ 2000 ans puis amenés à Rome. D'autres sont des copies de modèles égyptiens faites à Rome, ou faites en Egypte par des Romains. En visitant Rome, vous en trouverez à chaque place. Celui-ci, photographié à la Place du peuple, a été fait en Egypte en l'an 10 avant JC. Les lions ont été ajoutées en 1818.
