Basilica Aemilia - Rome

Built in 179 the Basilica Aemilia, in ruins today, is one of the oldest in the Eternal City. These ruins are significant: they show how the architectural models were handed down from one civilisation to the next. Imported from Greece, the appearance of basilicas in Rome was the expression of the birth of its economic domination in the Mediterranean world. This style of building fulfilled the function of a covered market and would then later be copied by the Christians when building their churches.
