THE CITY OF WATER, Underground Archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius.

The “cavaedium” of the domus

Everybody knows the Trevi Fountain, but the underground passages that stretch out under the Trevi district are less know. The underground archaeological area of Vicus Vicus Caprarius the City of Water – is part of this intricate labyrinth of ancient remains: the remains of a domus of the imperial era; the castellum aquae of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct; and the suggestive archaeological findings (including the famous head of Alexander  Helios) which came to light during the renovation works of the ex Cinema Trevi. In a journey back in time it will be possible to have an understanding of the different age-old stratifications of Rome and observe the archaeological testimony of the great events which have made up the history of the city from the fire of Nero to the construction of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct; from the sack of Alarico to the siege of the Goths.
