Note su un’area a margine di Villa Celimontana. La passeggiata archeologica tra l’Oppio e l’Aventino. Battaglie vinte e perdute
Maria Grazia Turco
The paper analyzes the events of archaeological Promenade in Rome; with the Unification of Italy starts a heated debate about the conservation and enhancement of the ancient remains of the Capital. Since the second half of the eighties is a politician to raise the argument in the Parliament: doctor and man of culture Guido Baccelli who becomes a promoter of an ambitious program to preserve historical ruins of Rome, the bond that they have developed with the areas and with the plant environment in which they are located. It is one of the last areas of the city between the Celio and the Aventine hills that still preserves a rural aspect with ruins, vineyards and villas that must be defended from speculation to become an urban park with large avenues. During the debate there are some personalities of the time, Giacomo Boni, Rodolfo Lanciani and some members of the Associazione Artistica fra i Cultori di Architettura.
