  • Between the markets of Trajan and Augustus the Roman architectural style clearly and ancient Rome's different from Loggia remains impressive. It seems to the remains of the monastery when they built the outside foremost Street show the prestige of the Empire by Mussolini, forced eviction. Loggia is that 211 Pope Paulus II (reign: 1464 - 1471) of one repaired around Marco Valvo cardinal nephew was appointed priest of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. Since 1946, has become the property of the Knights of St. John of Malta.

  • Templar House in Rome, the House of the Knights of Rhodes, resting on the ruins of the Forum Augustus. The building has an interesting history and the great façade attracted my oppmeksomhet. The red flag with the white cross wire in the wind here. The Interior will also be interesting and Nice, as well as housing the bygnngen two halls used as function rooms. The site is not open to the public daily and you have to arrange a tour.

  • The last layer is a direct consequence of the demolition of the monastery of Saint Basil, of its church and the monastery of the Annunciation took place in the third decade of the last century for the opening of the Via dei Fori Imperiali. And then, in a kind of late but compensates in 1946 the House was granted to the sovereign military order of Malta, derivation of former owners. Built on Roman structures, in 1466 Cardinal Marco Barbo gave her current appearance and trim. Towards the Forum of Augustus has cuts a fine figure of himself a balcony flanked by two Windows with a Greek cross and – towards the Forum of Trajan-a just as nice, if not more, eight arched loggia. The entrance from Piazza del Grillo was restored by the order of Malta during the restoration that followed the abovementioned concession. Inside the House is organized around two halls: the Hall of honor and the Sala della Loggia, also called Hall of the balcony. The first has a beautiful wooden ceiling and frescoes with medallions and the second contains a reconstruction of a part of the frieze of the arcades of the Forum of Augustus as well as remains of a fresco by Sebastiano del Piombo and other frescoes "torn" by the Church Saint Basil's, before its demolition. From a door in the back of the class greater than you get the beautiful Loggia erected by Cardinal Barbo on a wall of the Augustan age: in addition to the unique panorama, preserves frescos on the walls with landscapes and medallions depicting emperors, unfortunately damaged by time and from the weather, but always highly relevant (we speak of artists belonging to the circle of Andrea Mantegna). Other groups that meet in the visit: Byzantine Hall, the Antiquarium of the Forum of Augustus and the chapel of St John the Baptist, the patron saint of the Knights (going by a porticoed Atrium augusteo travertine pillars and arches).

  • The architectural complex of the Casa dei Cavalieri di Rodi is the result of a centuries-old stratification of monuments over the area during the Imperial period it housed the Forum of Augustus. This area was affected by the demolition that between 1924 and 1932 led to the opening of the Via dei Fori Imperiali, which leads to the disappearance of the medieval structures of the monastery of St. Basil and the sixteenth-century Dominican convent of Ss. Annunziata. In 1466 the Pope Paul II entrusted to cardinal nephew Marco Barbo administering the Priory of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, a hospitaller order which at the beginning of the thirteenth century had occupied the Church and monastery of the Basilian monks, arose from from the 9th century over the Temple of Mars ultor. The card. Barbel promoted a series of renovations that gave the building the appearance which can be admired even today: they were probably used the same workers who worked at the nearby Palace of the Republic of Venice. Crossed the Hall of honor with flags of the order and the arengario for speeches, the sala della Loggia with the recomposition of the attic of the arcades of the Forum of Augustus, some rooms with wooden ceilings, sculptures and paintings from various periods, you access the airy lodge with eight arches overlooking the holes. Fresco paintings depict medallions with emperors and landscapes populated by plants and animals of different species and are attributed to artists from the circle of Andrea Mantegna or Pinturicchio. Since 1946 the House is granted to the sovereign military order of Malta: the patron saint of the Knights, John the Baptist, is dedicated the chapel built in the atrium of a Roman dwelling. Place open exclusively to groups accompanied on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and closed in August, from which lodge painted you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Forum of Augustus and Trajan's markets
