This essay focusses on the role of architectural interventions in archaeological areas, with specific reference to the area of the Insula Occidentalis of Pompeii. The planned intervention has been conceived as a search for relations that stem from the excavations and archaeological remains. It is an operation that delves between the layers of matter and time but also a topographical one that aims to transcend the borders of the site. The fulcrum of the reasoning behind this task is the idea of connection, an idea that originates from the characteristic of “infrastructure” that archaeology takes on in certain contexts, placing urban areas and structures in different locations in relation to one another.
