Route through the rooms
The museum display is on the first and second floor of the gate, and is divided in ancient, medieval and modern sections. It is made up of double-sided information panels, with texts in English and Italian, indispensably supported by colour drawings and photographs.
This room is located in the West tower and contains three panels and a reconstructive model: one panel concerns the gates of the walls, the others contain information about the Via Appia, and on the diverse building techniques used by the Romans subsequent to opus quadratum; the model reproduces the section of the wall between the Porta Asinaria and the Castrense amphitheatre, whose architecture was adapted to overcome the very uneven ground in the area.
This is the last room in the ancient section.
