Guided tour
Walking along Via dei Fori Imperiali you can see, set between the Forum of Trajan and that of Augustus, an architectural structure that differs from the neighboring monuments because it is characterized by an eight-arched loggia overlooking the Forums.
This is the House of the Knights of Rhodes
In Protected content Paul II entrusted the administration of the priory of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem to his nephew, Cardinal Marco Barbo
who took care of restoring and restoring the building. The hospital order was born in the thirteenth century. He had settled in the church and in the adjacent monatero of the Basilian monks. Since Protected content House has been granted use to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta: the chapel created in the atrium of a Roman residence is dedicated to the patron saint of the Knights, John the Baptist. Some of the rooms retain ancient wooden ceilings, sculptures and paintings from various periods; the fresco paintings, unfortunately poorly preserved due to atmospheric agents, depict medallions with emperors and landscapes and are attributed to artists from the circle of Andrea Mantegna.
