    the only archaeological reference San Prisco, always unattended, overrun by weeds that I rediscovered

    Yes located on the Appian way and as soon as the structure you see speaks for itself also if can appear cold and dismal.

    They say that Rome is the eternal city. Eternity brings to mind the lack of boundaries in time, as if following a principle, there is never an end. But, a closer look, this lack of limits is accompanied, in the case of Rome, a sort of spatial encroachment. I.e. Rome you know where to start and you don't know where it ends. Wonderful metaphor if nothing miraculous about this spatio-temporal continuity is the Appian way. That winds today, in the North of Caserta on exactly the same path in the Roman period. By connecting the flourishing and civilized Capua ("altera Roma", the other Rome as Cicero called it) to another large city now lost, Calatia, more or less at the current Maddaloni. And along that Strip remained miraculously "live" two funerary monuments, one of which is that of "Carceri vecchie". That everything points except at a burial destination, with the harmony of its forms, the accuracy of his "reticulatum," the pride of his appearance that speaks Latin and makes pensare...ai Gladiators. And suddenly you hear around you the clamor of the fight and see there, in the doorway, the silhouette of a retiarius with his Trident threatening and just beyond a "secutor", with its glittering helmet ... The Gladiator school in Capua was near and that building, which has very little funeral. for the collective memory was supposed to be jail time. Because gladiators were disreputable. No coincidence that Spartacus was one of them. Maybe the retiarius, facing the door, which resulted in Rome so much trouble as only Hannibal was capable of.
