Via Flaminia, Rome

It is one of the consul's ways, as it was opened by Caius Flaminius, and lead to Rimini. It had been taken the beginning from Porta Ratumena, close to the Tomb of Bibulus, at present Piazza Venezia. With the construction of Aurelian Walls, a part of Via Flaminia remained inside of the city and was named Via Lata (present Via del Corso). Thus, the new beginning of Via Flaminia was from Porta Flaminia, present Porta del Popolo.

The rearrangement of ancient way took place in 1910, when the zone on either side of it changed its original look and functions.
