Materiali lapidei di età altomedievale dall'area del teatro di Marcello per la storia del quartiere
In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 112, 2012
The analysis of some unpublished pieces of high-medieval sculptures resulted in the reconstruction of the cultural background of the zone around the Theatre of Marcellus, where the fragments
have been stored since the Thirties, when the urban medieval quarter had been destroyed.
The sculptures, dating from the ninth century AD, belonged either to ecclesiastical or to residential buildings. They were probably realized in Papal workshops and divide into corbels, thresholds, architraves and parapets sculptured in marble: the production had been probably considered suitable for secular residences, in a spirit of emulation, in order to show the high social position of the owners.
