The photo shows the Arch of Constantine, a triumphal arch in Rome, situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. The importance of this arch is its status as an architectural source of inspiration for many artists and architects. I believe this image gathers the idea of the January in Rome trip: the study of art and architecture of the City.
