Roma capitale

Here is a stamp issued by Poste Italiane, last saturday, April 21st, about Roma as capitale of Italy.
This picture is an aquarelle by Giorgio Borghesani representing a landscape viewed from the Forum Romanum. On the left, the remaining columns of the Temple of Saturn. On the right, the brown building is the Curia Iulia, where the Senate met after Caius Julius Caesar. Between them, a 7th century church was builded : Saints-Luke-and-Martina church.

A pretty archeological landscape, isn't it ?
