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 occupies the second floor of the central body of the gate, above the entrance arch. In it are displayed six panels concerning the Medieval and Modern sections of the museum. They take up the narrative of the historical and architectural developments of the Aurelian Walls, showing the changing relationship in the Medieval period between the walls and dwellings, the latter shrinking due the progressive population decrease, and, in the XVIth to XXth centuries the most important restoration works accomplished by the various Popes, as well as modifications and new constructions.
