Insula di San Paolo alla Regola Reviews
From 1978 to 1982 the Municipal administration, in competition with the Autonomous Housing Institute and the Lazio region, took care of the restoration of a group of houses owned by his site on Via di S. Paolo alla rule, between the Church of the Holy trinity of pilgrims and Via del Conservatorio . It is a set of buildings of 4-5 floors in height, outside of the prevailing seventeenth-century appearance, centred around the sixteenth-century Palazzo Specchi which overlooks with a short break on the main street. The restoration revealed, unexpectedly, how the buildings maintained in all their monumentality much more ancient structures, which still constitute the body of the whole system. In particular, there are structures of the Roman age for four floors of height, two under the ground and two above, and these constituted the basis of a powerful and complex medieval restructuring, which raised the constructions almost to the height of Current situation.
It is amazing how simply go down in the cellar of a building and you are catapulted into a Roman insula of Martius and how, over the centuries, people who have followed have reused the spaces for the many different purposes. The Guide, extremely prepared, allowed us to appreciate the many details.
