Abstract

The article aims at analysing two different recent approaches to some roman structures made by bricks, still visible in the contemporary suburbs of Rome, where redevelopment plans have been realized reaching different results in terms of enhancement. A wall of a reservoir is located in a square surrounded by a working-class neighbourhood built during the 50s. Archaeology excavations were conducted concurrently the realization of a requalification plan in the marketplace area; It brought to light the most hidden ruins, which are now under the street level. A lining out project realized in the square permits to understand the perimeter of the entire reservoir and, at the same time, the function of the isolated wall still visible. Nowadays, the remains, protected by a pedestrian area, have become a hub for the local residents who can have a rest in the square, and so appears reconnected to the everyday life of the marketplace. The other example is a group of three mausoleums located in what used to be a rural area, where ten years ago a new residential quarter composed of buildings surrounding a public garden was built. Despite the very high quality of the bricks used, especially in the ruins of one of these tombs, and despite the historical relevance of the much better conserved mausoleum, all of them appear not yet enhanced enough, due to the lack of a general plan aimed at connecting the tombs with the modern context and also with some others relevant remains excavated in the area.
