Pantheon

THE MUSEUM

Among the ancient classic buildings, the Pantheon is certainly the best preserved one, as a result of its transformation into a Church (Saint Mary and the Martyrs) in 609. The original structure was constructed between 27 and 25 BC by Marcus Agrippa to celebrate Augustus and was then dedicated to the main deities of the Julio-Claudian family.

The present building was reconstructed during Emperor Hadrian’s time (118-125 AD). A huge cylindrical wall (the Rotonda), more than 6 meters thick, supports the monumental vault, the largest unreinforced dome ever built, with a diameter  of  43.30 meters which is equal to its height.
