European Archeology Days

Together with the other European bodies and institutions, the Capitoline Superintendency for Cultural Heritage also participates in the European Archeology Days, scheduled for 16, 17 and 18 June, with the aim of making archaeological heritage known to the general public.

The event is organized by the Institut National des recherches archéologiques préventives (INRAP) with the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture.

To disseminate knowledge of the archaeological heritage of the city of Rome, this year too the Superintendence is proposing visits led by its own archaeologists to more and less known places, from the territory to the museum, also with LIS interpreting. It, therefore, ranges from the history of sites and monuments such as the Theater of Marcellus and Monte Testaccio to the classical and oriental archeology collections of the Giovanni Barracco Museum, and to the materials from the villas of Centocelle, conserved at the SDO Excavation Office. An appointment designed for families and children also leads to the discovery of the Ara Pacis, while the guided tours of the Casal de’ Pazzi Museum illustrate the Pleistocene environment preserved inside. Finally, in addition to the appointments open to all, with a view to guaranteeing the widest accessibility to the archaeological heritage, dedicated activities are planned at the Capitoline Museums in collaboration with some associations of the disabled with visits and tactile workshops and in LIS.
