It’s the temple of ‘Fortuna Respicens’ and let’s see the meaning it had.
It’s hard to imagine but this route was used since the extreme past. The triumphal processions were passing here.
Since the age of the roman republic the winning generals were awarded to enter the city together with the army, their booty and prisoners and to be welcomed and praised by all the roman citizens.
It was the only time when the army was welcomed in town and the most important happenings in the past.
the good luck that looks backward.
The triumphal procession and general stopped by the temple.
The winning generals were driving a chariot led by four horses, were dressed in gold with their face painted in red, as if they were Jupiter themselves.
The attendant, who stood behind them holding the golden crown of the winner over their head, at that point used to tell them: 'respice' .
Respice meant: look at your back, remind that you're a man and not a god. Get back to hearth, remember who and what you are.
Let’s always remember we’re just human beings.
