About The Event

From  the outside it’s quite an unassuming building and the basilica itself is beautiful. The  history here is incredible! You can see the different foundations built  upon earlier foundations again and again, layer upon layer, like a  “Roman lasagna”.   The  layers of excavations below starting with the 4th century church below,  then down another level to the 1st century temple and Roman mint  buildings, and the glimpse of the water system from a few centuries  before that. A desperate attempt to outpace the flooding of the  nearby Tiber River.

It’s a really unique site with a very interesting collection of excavations covering several centuries.
