The archaeological excavation corse of the Specialization School in Monument Restoration
The didactic sites of archaeological excavation of the School of Specialization in Restoration of Monuments were born with the aim of making architects aware of the methodologies and techniques used by archaeological research. Such knowledge would have proved important for their inclusion in the branch of Architecture aimed at the study, restoration, conservation and enhancement of monuments.
The archaeological sites to which we refer in this work, carried out from 1961 to 2013, took place in Rome: in the area behind the Curia, in the Forum of Caesar, at the Tempio del Divo Romolo, at Vico delle Carine and at the Baths of Caracalla. Since 1988 the didactic excavations have been carried out in various areas of the Colosseum (Cunei 74, 32, 7 and 9; cells I-IV of the Hypogea as well as the intersection of their axes; Fornici 47-48 in the III Order). These interventions made it possible to acquire stratigraphic sequences and unpublished data, as well as to establish new dating and to specify others.
