A particular characteristic to this Internet site
is the installation of a motorized camera located on the terrace of Rome's Palazzo
Senatorio that allows a television presence. On Decembre 30, 1999 has
been installed a new camera (West) adding to the first one
mounted on May, 1999 (East).
These are not only LiveCams, but a sophisticated
system, thanks to the technology of Canon, that allows you to possess the
position of the cameras with every browser (Java compatible). You too can admire the view
from Mayor Rutelli's balcony and enjoy seeing the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forums,
Saint Peter in Vatican, all
the way to the Coliseum. One can also rotate the telecameras and zoom on particular areas
for a few seconds.
