Foro di Traiano

Il Foro di Traiano, ricordato anche come Forum Ulpium in alcune fonti, è il più esteso e monumentale dei Fori Imperiali di Roma, l'ultimo in ordine cronologico.

Costruito dall'imperatore Traiano con il bottino di guerra ricavato dalla conquista della Dacia, e inaugurato, secondo i Fasti Ostiensi, nel 112, il foro si disponeva parallelamente al Foro di Cesare e perpendicolarmente a quello di Augusto. Il progetto della struttura è attribuito all'architetto Apollodoro di Damasco.
Il complesso, che misurava 300 m di lunghezza e 185 di larghezza, comprende la piazza forense, la Basilica Ulpia, un cortile porticato con la Colonna Traiana e due biblioteche. La presenza del tempio del Divo Traiano e di Plotina, aggiunto da Adriano, sembra essere stata accertata, dopo varie proposte alternative rivelatesi infondate, al di sotto di Palazzo Valentini, dove era tradizionalmente collocato.

Trajan's Forum

This forum was built on the order of the emperor Trajan with the spoils of war from the conquest of Dacia, which ended in 106. The Fasti Ostienses state that the Forum was inaugurated in 112, while Trajan's Column was erected and then inaugurated in 113.

To build this monumental complex, extensive excavations were required: workers eliminated the sides of the Quirinal and Capitoline (Campidoglio) Hills, which closed the valley occupied by the Imperial forums toward the Campus Martius.

It is possible that the excavations were initiated under Emperor Domitian, while the project of the Forum was completely attributed to the architect Apollodorus of Damascus, who also accompanied Emperor Trajan in the Dacian campaign.

During the time of the construction, several other projects took place: the construction of the Markets of Trajan, and the renovation of the Caesar's Forum (where the Basilica Argentaria was built) and the Temple of Venus Genetrix.
