1. Alagia, Donato. Horti Lamiani. Topography and recontextualization of the marble decoration from the late Roman Republic to Late Antiquity.

Degree: 2018, Freie Universität Berlin

This work provides the recontextualization of the decoration of the Horti Lamiani and the analysis of their transformation from the end of the Roman Republic to the Late Antiquity. In cooperation with the Archaeological Heritage Department of Rome (Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma), the aim of the study is the analysis of the marble decoration of the Horti Lamiani, in the light of the most recent excavations in the area of the Esquiline, in order to relocate it into its original context. This research aims at updating the results obtained in 1986 on the occasion of the exhibition catalog Le tranquille dimore degli dei edited by E. La Rocca and M. Cima, that for the first time offered an interpretation of the architectural design and the decorative program of the Horti Lamiani. Previous studies were mainly based on the archaeological discoveries rather hastily documented, collected and published by the Municipal Archaeological Commission created in 1872. The work has been organized according to some major categories: collection of historical and archaeological evidence regarding the complex, topography and recontextualization of the decorative elements. A first bibliographic approach was necessary to take a clear position within the scientific debate that focused on the localization of the site of the Horti Lamiani. Based on some topographical observations one can conjecture that the Horti Lamiani were settled outside the Servian walls and east of the ancient via Merulana. Once the area of investigation was defined, a further review of ancient sources has been carried out along with the recovery of the official documentation of the Soprintendenza gathered in the Geographic Archaeological Information System of Rome (SITAR), a WebGIS, which collects and computerizes all the data from previous and ongoing archaeological investigations. Those areas of the residence discovered in recent years by the Soprintendenza Archeologica were particularly examined. All the retrieved data were vectorized, which is to say they were translated into objects with a geometric, defined and geo-referenced shape, and incorporated in a digital map in order to realize a database available to consultation and inquiries. The information gathered by Lanciani and his collaborators during the construction works of the end of the 19th century along with the data acquired during the recent excavations have led to the drawing of phase maps which show the main stages of the evolution of the Horti Lamiani. Contrasting with the past studies, the stratigraphic excavations have allowed to distinguish six different building phases from the Augustan age to the late imperial period in the archaeological records. The incompleteness of the archaeological records and the lack of a physical continuity between the structures belonging to the Horti Lamiani do not allow to go back to an original architectural design. However, the analysis of the surviving structures, the comparison with the villas of the suburbium and the coast of Latium and… Advisors/Committee Members: m (gender), Prof. Dr. Johanna Fabricius (firstReferee), Prof. Dr. Marcello Barbanera (furtherReferee).
