Dettaglio del Colosseo
"Poi sono andato al Colosseo. L’enorme massa, il lato crollato, il lato in piedi con le sue aperture sul blu. Si aprono ovunque corridoi a volta, in cui le scale consumate sono come pendii. Il colosso è come un pizzo di pietra, con tutte le sue aperture sull’azzurro del cielo..."
(Émile Zola)

St. Pierre Church is located on the west side of Asi River and by the west foot of Hac (Staurin) Mountain. The area where the church was constructed is the antique city of Antiokheia.
As the Antiokheia got bigger between II. and IV. Centuries, church turned to be in the middle of the city, near the Agora. This means the building was important in the social life of people in that era. Although there is no concrete data on the exact construction date, the oral tradition, historical events and development process of the city suggest that the building was used since the first Christians in Antakya.

The cave in which the church was constructed is the place St. Pierre firstly preached. Later it was turned to an official church. The one-spaced building has 9,5 meters width, 13 meters length and 7 meters height. Its first construction is thought to consist of a cradle vaulted space acquired by caving a huge rock. This part was used since the period of first Christians of Antakya. This dates to an early time as 38-39 AD. Secondly, stone walls and two stone columns were added. By adding of these elements, building was enlarged. This two columned intervention separated the space into three naves.

The west façade was constructed by Kapuchin Priests in 19th century. The traces on the façade and platform in front suggest that there was a portico here formerly. West façade show a regional style which has a threefold layout. This façade was constructed by hewn stones and has three portals, middle one of which is bigger than the others.

The platform of hewn stones, altar and St. Pierre sculpture in a niche belong to recent times.

This plastic model of ancient Rome is one of the star exhibits of the Museo della Civiltà Romana (Museum of Roman Civilization) in Rome, Italy. It was created painstakingly by Italo Gismondi in a labour of love that took 22 years from 1933 to 1955 to complete. The scale of the model is 1:250.
.
Purportedly commissioned to be representative of Constantinian Rome by Mussolini, the heavy reliance on the Forma Urbis Romae, a colossal stone map of the city bolted to the side wall of the Temple of Peace in the Forum of Vespasian which was made by the Emperor Severus has it draw likeness more closely to Rome of the early 3rd century.
