Rosenstein Palace

Stuttgart, Germany

Rosenstein Palace was built between 1822 and 1830 by the court builder Giovanni Salucci (1769–1845) in the classical style for King Wilhelm I. The palace stands in Rosenstein Park on a height overlooking the Neckar river valley. Formerly called the Kahlenstein (literally 'bald rock', because it was bare of trees), the hill was renamed Rosenstein ('rose rock'), and a rose garden was planted to the south-east of the palace.

Today, Schloss Rosenstein houses that part of State Museum of Natural History Stuttgart dealing with extant lifeforms.

Arch of Septimius Severus

The white marble Arch of Septimius Severus at the northwest end of the Roman Forum is a triumphal arch dedicated in AD 203 to commemorate the Parthian victories of Emperor Septimius Severus.  and his two sons, Caracalla and Geta.

After the death of Septimius Severus, his sons Caracalla and Geta were initially joint emperors. Caracalla had Geta assassinated in 212; Geta's memorials were destroyed and all images or mentions of him were removed from public buildings and monuments. Accordingly, Geta's image and inscriptions referring to him were removed from the arch.

The arch was raised on a travertine base originally approached by steps from the Forum's ancient level. The central archway, spanned by a richly coffered semicircular vault, has lateral openings to each side archway, a feature copied in many Early Modern triumphal arches. The Arch is about 23 metres in height, 25 metres in width and 11.85 metres deep.
