June 4, 1944, Rome is free. Along the Via Casilina, the soldiers of the 85th American infantry division enter Rome through Porta Maggiore. The entrance is followed by the cheering population who thus greet the end of the war and the return to freedom.
Porta Maggiore built entirely in travertine, it was built by the emperor Claudius in 52 AD to allow the crossing of via Prenestina and via Labicana to the aqueduct that bears his name.
