The Ara Pacis Augustae (Latin for "Altar of Augustan Peace", and commonly shortened to Ara Pacis) is an altar to Peace, envisioned as a Roman goddess.
It was commissioned by (or for) the Roman emperor Augustus, consecrated on 30 January by the Senate to celebrate the peace established in the Empire after Augustus's victories in Gaul and Spain.
The Ara Pacis was elaborately and finely sculpted entirely in gleaming white marble, depicting scenes of traditional Roman piety, in which the Emperor and his family were portrayed in the act of offering sacrifices to the gods.

 Meier's New Home for the Ara Pacis - Wired New York Forum
His new Ara Pacis Museum is the first significant structure to go up in Rome's historic centre since Mussolini's time, and as such it has attracted a great deal of attention, mostly negative.
The floor of the main hall, housing the Ara Pacis itself, is a polished version of the same stone, while the sides and the ceiling of the main, 13m-high volume that houses the Ara Pacis are predominantly glass.
Like most new museums, the Ara Pacis is stuffed with unnecessary add-ons: an overly formal lobby, a bookstore and a 150-seat theater that seems a wrongheaded fillip in a museum with a single work of art.

Although Meier's Ara Pacis is the first building for decades to be built in the ancient centre -- alongside famous landmarks like Piazza Navona and the Spanish steps -- several of his contemporaries have already been busy in Rome's suburbs.

 Ara Pacis - Wikipedia
L'altare è decorato con personaggi femminili sullo zoccolo, mentre nel fregio superiore che gira all'interno ed all'esterno della mensa vi è la raffigurazione di un sacrificio con le Vestali ed il pontefice massimo.
Nella sezione superiore nei lati lunghi troviamo la rappresentazione del Lupercale, la grotta dove la lupa avrebbe allattato Romolo e Remo, ed il sacrificio di Enea ai Penati che sono entrambi di importanza artistica ben minore degli altri fregi.
Dopo sette anni di lavori, è stato ultimato l'edificio destinato a racchiudere l'Ara Pacis, progettato dall'architetto Richard Meier in acciaio, travertino, vetro e stucco che è stato inaugurato e aperto ufficialmente al pubblico il 21 aprile 2006 in occasione del Natale di Roma.
