La pianta marmorea: novità e prospettive
In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 117, 2017
After a brief analysis of the research on the Severan marble plan carried out over the last decade, the paper focuses on the question of the existence of an original Vespasianic map in the Flavian Templum Pacis, which has been recurrently postulated by scholars. The issue of the updates (or the lack thereof ) of the Severan plan after the fire of 192 AD is also taken into account. Finally, the two principal earlier displays of the Forma Urbis are analysed (at Palazzo Nuovo, 1742-1903, and in the Giardino Romano, 1903-1924).
