    Since the 1980s, more than once raised the issue of the elimination of the street Via dei Fori Imperiali, since it separates into two parts, the archaeological site and prevents excavations.

    According to the idea of ​​Mussolini Via dei Imperial Fora was symbolically linking the Colosseum to Piazza Venezia - the center of the new fascist empire. Opening of the Empire under the name of the street (via dell'Impero) was April 9, 1932.

    After the Second World War, the street was renamed in Via dei Imperial Fora. Every year on June 2 held here a military parade in honor of the Italian Republic.
