The Trajan column inaugurated in 113 AD it is a historical monument in the majestic Forum of Trajan.
Formed by 18 large blocks of overlaid Carrara marble, it has been excavated from the inside creating a spiral staircase that leads to the small terrace placed on top above the Doric capital, in which lay the statue of Trajan, lost during the medieval era and replaced with the statue of St. Peter.
One of the most complete works visually of the Roman era, this structure has along the stem with a relief frieze (in which about 2500 figures are represented), the most important phases of the war against Dacia.
A magnificent and majestic building that we can still see and observe despite the centuries and the negligence have not been friends with it.
