The Roman Forum At Dawn

Located between two hills in Rome, the Forum was the heart of the city, the center of its economic life, the gathering place of its citizens and where ancient Roman civilzation was formed.

The illustration above is from a lithographed travel poster created in 1920 by artist George Dorival and printed in Cannes by Affiches Photographiques Robaudy. The artist captures the Roman Forum at dawn as the light sweeps across the city.
