The white Victor Emanuel Monument (20th century) is in the left foreground. Directly behind the monument is the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli, the official church of the Commune di Roma. In the right foreground, at the top of the dark grey ramp, is the Campidoglio, including the Commune di Roma (the city government of Rome, center, with tower) and the two Capitoline Museums, surrounding Michalangelo's decorated Piazza on the Capitoline hill. The Forum Romanum lies between the Campidoglio and the Coloseum. The 1999 archeological digs are at and off the left edge of the picture, and the Palatine hill is at the upper right edge of the picture.
