The splendor that the city reached during the Roman Age is testified by the materials showcased in the Santa Giulia Museum, which come from public, civic, and religious buildings (such as the late Republican Age sanctuary where the splendid ‘fourth cell’ was recently restored, and over which the Capitolium temple was built), as well as private houses and the first Christian places of worship. Inside the Museum, a special exhibit is dedicated to a Roman house (Domus) with remains from two beautiful houses found in an area that in the Middle Ages was near the nuns’ vegetable garden (hence the name Domus dell’Ortaglia – vegetable garden in Italian).
The largest Roman Archaeological Park in northern Italy includes the Capitolium Temple – with the extraordinary bronze statue of the Winged Victory -, the Theatre, rests of thermal spas, and the Basilica. Completely accessible and equipped with augmented reality, it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.
