  • What remains of the insula in us open, are the two underground floors of the building, especially the spaces for shops that were directly on the banks of the Tiber (which corresponds to the last basement) with remains of amphoras testifying the fact that these were businesses and directly above these, islet of which there are traces of frescoes with fake marble. The excavations of this site are relatively recent (late 70 's) and I hope we can expand.

  • The archaeological complex of s. Paolo alla Regola is a residential and commercial real estate in destination i.e. insula popular, which had four floors, two today under the level and two heights; excavated, restored and currently open to visitors is located in the first and second level basement of the sixteenth-century palace of mirrors, occupied the first floor from the municipal library for boys and in the upper floors from private homes.

  • From 1978 to 1982 the Municipal administration, in competition with the Autonomous Housing Institute and the Lazio region, took care of the restoration of a group of houses owned by his site on Via di S. Paolo alla rule, between the Church of the Holy trinity of pilgrims and Via del Conservatorio . It is a set of buildings of 4-5 floors in height, outside of the prevailing seventeenth-century appearance, centred around the sixteenth-century Palazzo Specchi which overlooks with a short break on the main street. The restoration revealed, unexpectedly, how the buildings maintained in all their monumentality much more ancient structures, which still constitute the body of the whole system. In particular, there are structures of the Roman age for four floors of height, two under the ground and two above, and these constituted the basis of a powerful and complex medieval restructuring, which raised the constructions almost to the height of Current situation.

  • It is amazing how simply go down in the cellar of a building and you are catapulted into a Roman insula of Martius and how, over the centuries, people who have followed have reused the spaces for the many different purposes. The Guide, extremely prepared, allowed us to appreciate the many details.
