Abstract

The excavations of the Department of Archaeology of the University of Bologna of the year 2012 in the Roman town of Suasa has brought to light main street of the town in Mid-imperiale age: it is a stone paved road flanked by important buildings. The Forum on the west has been exhaustively excavated in the previous years, and so has been the huge Domus of the Coiedii family. New buildings south of this house can be interpreted as a Curia and possibly a temple dedicated to Augustus and his dynasty. The road itself has many phases, the most ancient of them being probably of Augustian times. Once the Roman road and the surrounding buildings has been abandoned, the whole area was devolved to agriculture up to Renaissance age, when the road was rebuilt on an upper level, and finally rebuilt again in modern times.
