The monumental frieze created by William Kentridge on the banks of the Tiber is like an unravelled triumphal column. The 80 images in procession in fact recall the scenes engraved on Trajan’s column, without however following any particular time order or story line; it is a series of symbols, archetypes and events which have been freely reinterpreted by the talented South African artist to tell his version of Rome’s history.
