Summary (English)

  • In the area of Rome between the Arch of Constantine and the Arch of Titus, and at the foothills of the impressive foundations of the Vigna Barberini terrace, are found the north-western slopes of the Palatine hill, occupied by some partially unknown and exceptionally well- preserved buildings. Current investigations on this outstanding building palimpsest have enriched this urban background, already extremely rich in its memories, with new constructions and new documents from a three thousand-year history, providing elements essential to the understanding of the settlement dynamics and the development of this fundamental portion of the historical city. The discovery of these new and fragile structures led to the need for a restoration project, guided by a critical interpretation of the current situation, focused on the conservation and enhancement of the surviving buildings, and also on the facilitation of the explanation and interpretation of such extremely stratified structures, carried out with respect for the identified features and the authenticity of the original materials.
