Preventive archaeological surveys

Interferences with archaeological strata involve chiefly the construction of stations and of ventilation shafts, since the tunnels extend to depths varying from 27 to 55 m, and thus always beneath the archaeological depth which averages about 10-12 m beneath road level.

Phase One Surveys

Starting in 2006, to supplement the survey campaign conducted by the Municipality of Rome for drawing up the preliminary design, phase one preventive archaeological surveys were performed for Sections T2, T3, T6, and T7.

For the area of the Historic Centre – Sections T2 and T3 – preventive surveys were carried out, defined as Phase One surveys, with work sites opened in 22 archaeological sites.

For section T6, preventive surveys were performed with work sites opened in 3 archaeological sites:

  1. Giardinetti archaeological site
  2. Torre Spaccata station – Casilina/Tor Tre Teste archaeological site
  3. Giglioli station – Casilina/Tobagi archaeological site.

Phase Two Surveys

For the first Montecompatri/Pantano – San Giovanni Functional Section, during the building of the underground constructions, the so-called “phase two” surveys were completed, consisting of the complete excavation of the volume of earth of archaeological interest during the performance of the works.

These surveys brought to light a considerable quantity of finds at the 29 surveyed archaeological sites.

The activity that was carried out, based on excavations of dimensions suited to the works to be performed and not on core sampling in points, made it possible on the one hand to update all the historical mapping, and on the other to define design solutions that were absolutely compatible with the archaeological substratum, as confirmed by all the Superintendencies.
