Abstract

Between the XIII and the XIV century, the streets and the buildings of Rome witnessed the rising of a new identity. Therefore, the communal activities aimed to reconnect to the image and the idea of the ancient city through the reuse of antiquities. The purpose of the paper is to rediscover the Late Medieval appearance of the church of San Salvatore de Sebura in Monti, thanks to the analysis of the notarial documents from the second half of the XIV century. These scripts outline the structure of the narthex, possibly bearing reused columns. This colonnaded area, probably destroyed during the Sack of Rome in 1527, is depicted as a central place for the urban activities, underlining the importance of this building in the civic dimension. The paper digs up features and functions of buildings of the Regione Monti tainted by the interventions realized on the urban structure since the XV century, recognising a path in which the main activities of the neighbourhood were organised. Thus, reused antiquities in preeminent architectures display an effort to strengthen the district identity, as well as the communal one.
