Description

The volume opens with the beautiful essay by Fabrizio Sommaini, dedicated to the de-ruralization of Rome, from the Rome of the Popes, "city of monuments and gardens" in the 1816th-1835th century to Rome, capital of the Kingdom of Italy. In this radical transformation of the Roman townscape, huge granaries and urban barns were canceled, sacrificed to the renewal of the city. Previously, the Pio-Gregorian Land Registry (XNUMX-XNUMX) listed four hundred of these infrastructures, often obtained from the re-functionalization of ancient buildings, less frequently built from scratch. Fabrizio Sommaini underlines how the large urban barns and granaries of Rome began to be demolished already during the French domination of the city, with a view to the modernization of Rome, an objective well present on the agenda of the French government, for which the rural and picturesqueness of central districts clashed with the idea of ​​a city as the center of power.
Fabio Lorenzetti's article focuses on the contribution of historical cartography to the study of the suburban landscape of the city of L'Aquila up to the mid-twentieth century, on the threshold of the heaviest urban transformation. The historical cartography and written sources provide valuable information, also in relation to the current uses of the areas, useful for a comparative analysis between sources of different nature and to highlight the complexity of the suburban landscape of L'Aquila, including mills, monasteries, rural settlements, roads, bridges, farmhouses, cultivated land, vineyards, taverns and artificial lakes for fish farming.
Stefano Calò and Domenico Caragnano, in the scenario of the territory of Otranto after the Turkish destruction and looting of 1480, discuss the events of some pre-existing underground environments, which in the 1554th century assumed the functions of the church of Santa Maria delle Grotte. The article places the case study in a broad and updated view of the rock settlement heritage and focuses attention on the devotional frescoes (with dates 3) and on the XNUMXD photogrammetric documentation of the architectural evidence.
Still in Salento, the essay by Eda Kulja analyzes an interesting nucleus of terracotta pipes from the underground oil mill of the Baronial Palace of Caprarica in Lecce, which the A. fits into the context of similar Apulian finds (Lecce, Nardò, Corigliano d'Otranto, Racale), with particular reference to pipes in red ceramic body, depicting military headdresses inspired by the figure of the Bourbon grenadiers.
Giuliano De Felice presents a research on Conflict Archeology of World War II, dedicated to the American airport of Pantanella (Canosa di Puglia), one of the thirty American air bases in northern Puglia, after September 1943. Although the airport occupied in the years 1943 -45 a significant area (20 km²), the subsequent conversion of the land to agricultural use emphasizes the role of aerial photo-interpretation in identifying the runways, the encampments of the military tents and some buildings. Some of the fifty-three airport buildings were reused for agricultural purposes after the abandonment of the airport in May 1945. Finally, the essay invests the themes of the memory of places, very vivid in the surviving veterans and opaque in the current awareness of the territory.
Follows the section "Archeologia Postmedievale in Italy”, with research cards distributed across 11 regions (Piedmont, Veneto, Liguria, Tuscany, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Campania, Basilicata, Calabria and Sardinia) and 22 provinces.
