WebCam Fori Imperiali: A WebCam is a live TV camera that takes pictures that you can see, usually live, on the Internet. Some of the best ones can be manipulated by Internet users who get to control the camera for a short period of time, during which they can pan, tilt, and zoom the camera to see what they want to see. From our viewpoint, the most interesting WebCam is the one that is mounted on the top of Trajan's Column in the Fori Imperiali in central Rome. Either use the controls or any of several preset control combinations in a pull-down menu. To get control of the Fori Imperiali WebCam for 90 seconds, go to and follow the instructions.
