Roman Forum road off-limits to cars during Ferragosto


Rome, August 13 - The road leading through the
Roman Forum to the Colosseum will be completely off-limits to
cars for four days starting on the Ferragosto holiday Thursday,
Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino declared Tuesday.
The road, which was built by Fascist dictator Benito
Mussolini, is currently undergoing a gradual process of being
made exclusive to pedestrians, cyclists and public vehicles, as
part of an overhaul launched by Marino earlier this month.
Ferragosto, on April 15, is the Feast of the Assumption, a
national holiday when virtually everything in the country shuts
It was first established in 18 BCE to celebrate the harvest
by the emperor Augustus, who oversaw the final building stages
of the Forum.
