Project

The South-Eastern Sector of the Esquiline Hill. Reconstruction of the Ancient Landscape, Between the Late Republic and the Third Century AD

The aim of my project is to investigate the development of the south-eastern sector of the Esquiline Hill, between the Late Republic and the third century AD. This multifunctional area had many different uses and included a variety of monuments. My research aims at collecting, mapping and studying all the heterogeneous evidence known from the area, by combining archaeological, epigraphic and literary sources, together with archival records and the application of informatics tools. The final goal is to increase our understanding of this ancient landscape, which could be considered a perfect place to investigate the development of the cultural, economic and social history of ancient Rome.

Fields of Research

Classical Archaeology, Topography of Ancient Rome, Roman History and Latin Epigraphy
