The documentation of Flaminia historical sites

Site description

The Carsulae was an ancient Roman city located along the future Via Flaminia, which becomes the main street of the urban center of the area.
The city, thanks to the commercial and military traffic that took place along Via Flaminia, gathered the pre-Roman populations residing on the hills and in the nearby countryside. The territory was inhabited since the Middle Bronze Age. Following the excavations that started in the sixteenth century, by the Counts Cesi, and culminated with the intensive campaigns between 1951 and 1972, they found a large amount of monuments: building structures and infrastructure, as well as a series of inscriptions, from which a rich and politicized town hall appears.

Documentation Methodology

The research project consists in detecting the archaeological area to study the remains of the original spaces. From a first initial work in which the archaeological remains were documented, using laser scanners, we moved on to the study of wall structures to define the materials used. Then the 3D models of the various areas were elaborated from which a reconstruction was also done of some portions present into the area.
