In these years Milan has changed: let’s think about mura spagnole in Porta Romana. From dept of the underground, they became a fashion pub and now host the new Milanese baths. But there are also the rests of the the Western Roman Empire (San Lorenzo in Ticinese can be an excelent example).

The discover of the Teatro romano came out at the end of the nineteenth century, when Milan was a building site with a new plan and fabolous palaces. These happened in piazza Cordusio, Corso Magenta and Palazzo Turati, where today are the remains, en plein air, of the Palazzo Imperiale.

According to the studies of 2004 made by  the Milan Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, the Teatro Romano of Milan belongs to a period before the Late Empire: the Augustan age (31 B.C. – 14 A.D.)

Today we can see the remains of the cavea, that survived after the Frederick Redbeard’ s destructive raid in 1162.

The visit is free, but you have to reserve: or call the 02/72343879 (on Monday from 9.30 am to 12.30).

Archaeologists will show you the remains along the trail, edited by Istituto di Archeologia of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and with the exhibition edited by the architect Ettore Lariani.

Then, to involve you deeper will be perfumes, sounds and the words of Casina of the latin author Plauto, performed by Giorgio Albertazzi (with the musics of Maestro Francesco Rampichini).

All the information on the site of the Milan Chamber of Commerce (there’s also a video).
