which was erected on the occasion of the departure of the Roman emperor for the war in Dacia in 115 AD, and the Clementine arch built by Vanvitelli between 1735 and 1738. From here you can turn around and get to the lift at the base of Palazzo Anziani in Piazza Dante. With this you can go up to Piazza Stracca and from here admire the church of the holy name of Jesus, whose facade is the work of Vanvitelli and Palazzo Anziani.
