Description

We all know that Piazza Navona is one of the most remarkable examples of the city-planning continuity of Rome, perfectly maintaining the shape of the large ancient stadium built by Emperor Domitian before the year 86 AD, to host the Greek Athlete Games that he was very fond of. At the center of the long sides there were two entrances. A third entrance was at the center of the curved side. Their impressive structures are still visible under the INA Palace, in Piazza di Tor Sanguigna. The stadium could hold about thirty thousand spectators and was decorated with statues and marble groups. Pasquino that is the most famous Roman talking statue was probably one of the marblegroups that actually represents Menelaus supporting Patroclus.
