Description

During work on the construction of the Parco della Musica in the Flaminio district, at the foot of the Parioli mountains, between the Via Flaminia and the River Tiber, the remains of a large Roman villa, one of the largest out-of-town residences of the Republican age, have come to light. The structures, which emerged at a depth of four metres above the level of Viale Pilzudski, are preserved at foundation level, while the elevations were removed in ancient times during the abandonment of the villa. It is a single vast complex consisting of two buildings separated by a strip of land.

The excavations have revealed an extraordinary stratigraphic sequence: the area was used incessantly from the second half of the 6th century B.C. until the 2nd century A.D. when it was definitively abandoned, probably due to the frequent flooding of the nearby Tiber. The Roman villa has been appropriately incorporated into the modern Auditorium complex thanks to a change in the project that envisages the enhancement of the excavations and the creation of a small archaeological museum.

Renzo Piano, in fact, solved the problem by creating an exhibition space inside the foyer for the archaeological materials found. The presence of an archaeological area with a permanent exhibition makes the Parco della Musica a unique structure of its kind.
