    Summary (English)

    • The main aim of the “Pistrina – bakeries in Roman Italy” project is to define the chronology of the change from domestic bread making to commercial baking, based on the archaeological evidence regarding the technical developments, in particular that of the oven and the organisation of the production areas.

      Following the 2008 campaign, the data from the various trenches suggested a relative chronology – still hypothetical – for the development of the bakery, from the evidence documented in the mill room. Following a phase that was perhaps the one in which the house with a workshop originated, the bakery was created by the construction of a space housing two mills. In a subsequent phase, a third mill was added to the north of the first two, following the obliteration of the workshop facing onto via dell’Abbondanza.

      After the earthquake of 62 A.D., the architecture of the mill room was altered. All the dividing walls were demolished to create a large room with two columns to support the first floor above. The final phase, probably in the second half of the 70s A.D., saw a new increase in the bakery’s milling capacity: once the wall between the main room and room 3 was demolished a fourth mill was added, without the usual basalt paving.
