Capitoline Temple – The divine triad

0
The Capitoline Temple, also known as the Roman "Capitolium", is a building that was built over the Republican Sanctuary at the behest of Emperor Vespasian, around 73-74 AD, and is the most important monumental evidence of Roman "Brixia". The Temple was called Capitoline because it was immediately dedicated to the worship of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, who formed the 'Capitoline Triad'. Destroyed by a fire caused by a barbarian invasion, it was discovered at the beginning of the nineteenth century, more precisely in 1823, thanks to some excavations commissioned by the University of Brescia: it was buried under the many landslides coming from the Cidneo hill.
