Rome, a city that thinks in millennia, is going through a bout of "Augustus fever" to mark the 2,000th anniversary of the death of its first emperor, who left his mark on Rome and Western civilization like few others.The Eternal City is staging shows, exhibitions, debates and seminars on Augustus, who died on Aug. 19, A.D. 14 at the age of 75 after a 41-year reign that was the longest in Roman history.Among the events is a spectacular nighttime show that uses lights and projections to reconstruct the Forum of Augustus, one of the centers of public life in ancient Rome, allowing the visitor to see it as it was when it was first built.
