The Arch of Janus - Rome

The Arch of Janus, also known as the Arch of Constantine, is a four-sided arch and is located in the east of the Forum Boario, just above the Cloaca Maxima, to the Palatine hill slopes; Janus name probably derives from the Latin word meaning ianus or covered walkway leads, due to its function as a place of passage, meeting and important crossroads of ancient Rome. And 'an imposing structure built with marble slabs, many of reuse, with four pillars that support a vault and two rows of niches on each side once occupied by statues. The top floor, after several transformations, was destroyed around 1827, perhaps because they believed the medieval improperly. The restoration of the Arch, after winning the World Monuments Watch in 2016, was included in the World Monuments Fund funding programs which could start in 2016, thanks to Amex funds, in parallel with funding from the Superintendence of Archaeological Heritage in Rome, the restoration of the exterior architectural surfaces of the west elevation, the relief of the monument and the study of coverage and architecture (see section "Projects").
