Although described by Rossini as a Temple of the Muses, it is now believed the original building was a tomb or a temple dedicated to Faustina, wife of Antoninus Pius (emperor from 138-161). After it became a church dedicated to Sant'Urbano in the C10th its remote location (now on the edge of Caffarella Park) meant it was often abandoned.

A Roman doorway flanked by Doric columns, beside what was Santa Maria dè Calderari, the first church in Rome dedicated to the Immaculate Conception.

Although the church was demolished in 1881 during the building the Via Arenula, the doorway still exists in 'Via di Santa Maria dè Calderari'. In front of the doorway is a little scene of street musicians, drawn by Bartolomeo Pinelli to add life to Rossini's architecture.

Etching. 460 x 390mm (18 x 15¼"), with large margins, uncut.
Rather than being the Temple of Jove, these are the remains of the Temple of the Dioscuri (Castor and Pollux) in the Roman Forum. First built in 494BC, it was restored many times, so these columns date from the temple, dedicated by Tiberias in 6AD. The Dioscuri were the patrons of the Knights who every year held an impressive parade outside the temple. Under the columns is a little scene of riders driving bulls through the forum, drawn by Bartolomeo Pinelli to add life to Rossini's architecture.

The only obelisk in Rome that has not fallen since Roman times, it is topped by a gilt ball once believed to contain the ashes of Julius Caesar.
