Come with me on an exciting journey as I show you the Pantheon in Rome from a unique perspective with my drone. Although the weather wasn’t the best, with a deluge looming and recent rain, it made the experience even more special and breathtaking.
I created this video entirely on my own, from recording the footage, editing, color correction, and grading to achieve the final result.
Let me share some interesting facts about the Pantheon:
Originally constructed as a temple dedicated to all deities of the past, present, and future, the Pantheon was founded in 27 BC.
The building’s entire structure is a perfect sphere, and from the outside, the dome looks bare since the gilded bronze that covered it was removed. The only remaining bronze is found on the oculus and on the monument’s frame.
The oculus, located in the center of the dome, is the only window in the entire structure. Many believe that it doesn’t rain inside the temple, but it’s not true. As you can see in this video, the reflection of water on the temple floor proves otherwise.
The oculus was built with precise calculations to ensure that during the summer solstice at noon, a beam of light enters from the oculus and illuminates the large entrance door.
Additionally, the Pantheon also contains some tombs, including those of the first kings of Italy: Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I, as well as that of Raffaello.
