Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, Roma. Fu costruito intorno al 350 circa, come mausoleo di Costantina, figlia di Costantino. All'interno vi furono sepolte sia Costantina sia la sorella Elena. Questa foto raffigura l'Interno. La pianta circolare di questo edificio, come di altri paleocristiani, si riferisce a modelli provenienti dall'architettura romana.  Si trova all'interno del complesso di Sant'Agnese fuori le mura.

The Mausoleum of Constantia ~The mausoleum was later consecrated as the Santa Costanza church. Constantia (sometimes called Constantina) was the daughter of Emperor Constantine and his second wife Fausta and was never actually canonized.

The Pantheon was commissioned by Marcus Agrippa as a temple to all Roman gods. It was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian ca. 118-125 CE. The Romans used concrete faced with brick in its construction. It is a circular building, with a front porch of Corinthian columns and a concrete dome. It remained the largest domed structure in the world until the 20th century.

The Pantheon, is a building in Rome, Italy, commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus as a temple to all the gods of ancient Rome, and rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian about 126 AD. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. The height to the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle are the same, 43.3 metres.
