Una torre, una piazza, una loggia: nuovi dati su Palazzo Senatorio dalla lettura stratigrafica delle murature
In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 124, 2023
The stratigraphic reading of the masonry is an important tool for investigating the transformations the Palazzo Senatorio, seat of the Municipality of Rome, underwent in the Middle Ages. The analysis has been based on the identification, reading and interpretation of single constructive and destructive actions. In this paper the first phases of the Medieval structures have been related to the iconographic sources (starting from the Cimabue’s fresco of Ytalia in the upper basilica of San Francesco in Assisi) and to the coeval topographic organization of the area.
