  • If we had passed here before 1561, Porta Pia would not have yet been constituted and the only access to enter or leave Rome in this section of the Aurelian walls would be Porta Nomentana. This stretch of the old via Nomentana would have joined the current one at the height of Villa Torlonia, ending in Nomentum, the current Mentana. The remains that we can observe, made even more modest by the rise of the road plan, make us understand that the door was not a monumental entrance as Porta Maggiore, Porta San Sebastiano or Porta Asinara. The small size of this access is due to Porta Salaria, which was just a few hundred meters going towards Corso Italia. The thing that struck me is that until 1565, the year in which Pius IV will close definitively, in favor of Porta Pia, this access if he could buy the use, for a period of six months (for Sextaria) or for a year after auction. The "temporary" owner gained from the payment of duties on goods entering Rome.
