The archaeological site of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill presents enormous untapped potention which, through critical review and planning allowed for the development of a proposal containing broad guidelines for the removal of architectural barriers and the enlargement of paths available to all visitors in the area surrounding the monuments.
The project is based on a strong network of environmental, archaeological and architectural platforms which aim to, through minimal but timely interventions, to resolve the obstacles which may be a hindrance to the paths in the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. The execution of this initiative will be realized through the study thanks to innovative technologies which will render access to the monument area clearer and easier to use.
The intervention and project has expanded to include the size and type of works to be modified in order to eliminate all physical obstacles:
The basis of this project is to adopt methods and materials which are compatible with the area’s environmental and architectonic value. Our aim in the project is to provide design solutions for a simplified pathway into the sites in question.
The Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Rome is currently realizing a few these projects to remove obstacles and structural barriers for easy access:
