Description

Augustus’ house on the Palatine is one of the most refined and elegant examples of pictorial decoration in a private setting. 
The rooms which today can be visited are made up of a ramp covered by a barrel vault, entirely covered, both on the ceiling and walls, with frescoes; two small rooms which would have been used to host visitors and finally another room used for private purposes. 
The expressive form of the décor dates the rooms to the midst of the “second style”, according to a dating that places the decoration at between the first century B.C. and the first century A.D. :  the perception of a consciously sought-after archaic character is notable in the official halls, as are the more aerial and fantastic thematic and colour connotations in Augustus’ so called “little office”.
