The “studio” of Augustus is above his house, in the center of the Palatine Hill, where the emperor retired when he needed solitude. A room decorated with a view of the city.
Who can discover and experience this sensorial journey?
The visitors who will follow the multimedia path that involves seven places inside the Colosseum archaeological park, which can now be enjoyed with the “super ticket” and promises a profound discovery of ancient Rome.
The daily life of the emperor is told through images accompanied by a narrating voice, inside the house on the Palatine. On the walls of his house, in that of his wife Livia or in the Neronian cryptoporticus, the frescoes decorating the structures appear, the floors, the majestic ceilings are redesigned, lost statues or disappeared structures are reproduced. There are three places in seven that are redesigned and shown to visitors as they were in the times of their maximum splendor.
In the House of Augustus, we can see the Room of the Masks and that of the Pine Festoons in what is the private area of the house while, in the public area, we can see what remains of the Library, the Peristyle, the ramp that, assumes , were access to the Temple of Apollo, the Studiolo of Augustus and other rooms full of decorations. In the House of Livia, at present, you can admire the Atrium, the Triclinium and other 3 environments much larger than the rooms of the private wing of the House of Augustus. In these rooms we find a pictorial style very similar to the Augustus domus with great decorations and representations of mythical figures like Polyphemus.
The idea is to exploit the emotional involvement produced by the beauty of the images and the historical story to make scientific divulgation, to really make the visitor understand the value of the chosen places. In this way it will deepen the painting in ancient Rome, the Byzantine, medieval and Renaissance interventions, the architectural transformations over the centuries, the importance of sculpture in the imperial residences.
