  Streets of Rome

This street, known to those who follow the Tangenziale EST, is dedicated to the famous Italian archaeologist, engineer and topographer. Lanciani, born in Rome in 1845, was the protagonist and direct witness of an extraordinary period of archaeological exploration of Rome, during which the construction fever was only equal to that of the Second World War. In this activity he was able to follow all the numerous finds that took place during the works for Rome capital, which he described with great vivacity. Between 1878 and 1927 he was created the chair of « Roman topography » at the University of Rome and for his merits he was later appointed Senator of the Kingdom of Italy on June 3, 1911.
