ROMA ARCHEOLOGIA e RESTAURO ARCHITETTURA: News From the SSBAR in Rome – “…Martin! You really help classics stay alive in the USA,” e-mail comment by scholar and former reader of ROM-ARCH Yahoo.group (22 December 2011 [10|2014]).
“Dear Dr. Mariarosaria Barbera, Dr. Rossella Rea & Dr. Arch. Barbara Nazzaro, why is there no “NEW” information available on the website of the SSBAR in Rome regarding the important archaeological investigations conducted in the area of the Imperial Forums and the Metro C investigations along the Via dei Fori Imperiali (2006-14) as conducted by the Italian scholars of the SSBAR of Rome?”

“I am an undergraduate art history student at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, IL; working a ‘senior thesis’ on fascist period archaeology and urbanism in Rome. My interest is specifically the Fori Imperiali, Ara Pacis and mausoleum of Augustus. (If curious, I came upon this topic during a study abroad program last spring with the American University of Rome.) I have hit a wall trying to find information about recent debates, activities and such surrounding the destruction of the Via dei Fori Imperiali and excavating the Fori Imperiali. Some sources I have read say (very briefly) the removal of the Via dei Fori Imperiali is definite and others say it will never happen. What, or who exactly is either stopping ‘them’ from ripping this road out, or preserving it? I understand excavations are continuing in the Forum of Nerva, but I have no details. Do you know the immediate plans in excavating this area? Any information would be helpful and much appreciated.”
