Largo di Torre Argentina – The place where caesar was killed


Those who knew or suspected a conspiracy, warned Caesar not to come to the Senate that day. His wife specifically told him not to go to the Senate, because she had a disturbing dream.

The final act of treason was executed by Caesar’s most reliable confidant – Brutus, who persuaded him to show up at the Senate on the fatal day of March 15. Caesar was killed by the senators in Pompey’s Theatre – presently Largo di Torre Argentina.

The doctor who examined Caesar’s body found 23 stab wounds, but only one of them was fatal. Caesar actually bled to death. This medical report is considered to be the first forensic report in the world, because it is the first report establishing a cause of death preserved to this day.
