  • In a fully built urban area (tuscolana after door smart) is located in a public garden this large mausoleum. It is a great mound tomb (the third largest in Rome) attributed to Emperor Alexander Severus. Over time it was stripped of all the ornaments, decorations and fine marbles that covered it entirely inside. However, the original sarcophagus that is kept in the Capitoline Museums has been found. You visit - only by reservation - the interior now empty, but already the semi-circular environment, although bare, makes you imagine the importance of the site.

  • Underground tomb, with the overlying Hill of olive trees. Fenced and entrance from via Pediano next to lawn bowling. View all from market square. Looted tomb with the finest pieces in museums. A really great work without exploitation. Open by prior at no. 060608. The third mausoleum in Rome, in size and importance.

  • Via Tuscolana meets the Claudian aqueduct and gives itself airs from ancient Roman road being stupid (medieval). There is Porta Furba, with bad reputation due to thieves and robbers of the past, and near a hill surmounted by olive trees in the small park in Piazza dei Tribuni. Just a bushel (named after a Roman bowl full of grain needed for sowing of approximately 3300 square meters of farmland, now become unit area) who defended the third Mausoleum in Rome for greatness and importance up to the ruins of the sixteenth century. The figures on the lid of the sarcophagus found in it and currently held at the Capitoline museums-despite some doubts-Emperor Alexander Severus and his mother Julia. And, anyway, for wealth and Majesty of the underground complex, linked to very important people of the imperial family. A marble Portal opens a long corridor with bricks and with barrel vaults, until the circle a large domed burial chamber, air and light backed by skylights. On the whole, almost unknown to the people of the neighborhood, deserves much more than some sporadic visit authorized by Capitoline Superintendence of cultural heritage for groups up to thirty people and reservations required. alfredodenicolais

  • The Mausoleum of Alessandro Severo is for greatness the third mausoleum of Rome, after that of Adriano, Castel Sant'Angelo and that of Augustus in Piazza Augusto Imperatore, next to the ARA Pacis. Its defilated position in relation to other burial places is not accidental, it is located at a point where various axes intersect, the Tuscola that runs along it a few tens of meters and the Via Latina, which has only a few traces left in the urban fabric along the PA RCo of the tombs of via Latina. The funeral chamber, which is accessed through a short corridor, reminded me of a miniature Pantheon with the difference that the opening in the ceiling that we find here was not wanted by the builders but made by the archaeologists of the time to be able to access the Grave. The curious thing, browsing on the internet are some shots of the beginnings of 1900 in which you see this artificial mound that stands out in the then Roman countryside with a tower on its summit. Tower that will be demolished after lightning blows the shots causing it to collapse in part.
