Colonna di Marco Aurelio

Colonna di Marco Aurelio Review

Inspired by Trajan's Column, this 2nd-century AD column is composed of 27 blocks of marble covered in reliefs recording Marcus Aurelius's victory over the Germans. A bronze statue of St. Paul, which replaced the effigy of Marcus Aurelius in the 16th century, stands at the top. The column is the centerpiece of Piazza Colonna.
