Roma_-_palazzo_valentiniROME — The multimedia museum in the vaults of Palazzo Valentini, the headquarters for the Province of Rome, is a synthesis of history and technology.

Scientific examination of the finds and the town plans for Rome between the second and fourth centuries A.D. ensure that the city comes back to life using computer graphics, thanks to which it is possible to embark on a fascinating journey, walking on polychrome mosaics and large basalt paving stones, past the multi-coloured walls of the domus of senators so rich they built private thermal baths so close to the Roman Forums.

Thanks to the multimedia museum, created by Piero Angela, we will see exactly how the heating system for the two Roman domus worked, with their extraordinary thermal complexes, thought to be the luxury residences of magistrates with the rank of senators, which extended for 1,800 square meters in the area next to the Forum and Trajan’s Column.
