Description

The Museum, conceived and curated by Andreina Ricci, professor of classical archaeology at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", is the result of more than twenty years of work by CESTER (Centre for the Study of Territorial Transformations) at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" on Roman archaeology and an equally long and committed reflection on the relationship that links/separates archaeological remains from the contemporary city.
of an equally long and committed reflection on the relationship that links/separates archaeological remains from the contemporary city.

The aim of the Museum, the first didactic and interactive museum on archaeology in Rome, is to offer an original look at the archaeology of the entire capital, in a different relationship between the centre and the urban peripheries.

The Museum's introductory room illustrates a number of project proposals aimed at rethinking the role that archaeology could play in the process of qualifying peripheral urban areas. In the other rooms of the Museum, fragments of the city's history are illustrated through the archaeological remains found in the museum.
In the other rooms of the Museum, fragments of the city's history are illustrated through the archaeological remains found in the many excavations carried out in the areas of Rome's south-eastern suburbs, using a simple language that is useful for explaining the archaeological information and for telling the story, also by means of special itineraries or didactic tools. These
These results are organised around two major themes, 'death' and 'domestic life', respectively, the result of investigations into necropolis and villas dating from the Republican and Late Antique periods.

The museum has been designed both for young people in schools and for all citizens who want to realise the importance and fascination of the stories that the many archaeological sites outside the city walls testify to.
