  Open House Roma

The archaeological area of S. Croce is a highly suggestive complex, perhaps among the least known in Rome, but of extraordinary importance and, therefore, the subject of recent excavation and restoration interventions. The area, since the Augustan period, housed a neighborhood of large private residences. During the III century AD was chosen by the Severi emperors to build a luxurious residence distinct from the official seat of the Palatine. The construction of the Aurelian Walls (271-275 AD) broke the unity of the whole, incorporating some of its structures. With Constantine the complex, considerably modified, continued to function as an imperial residence with the name of Palazzo Sessoriano.
