Through an in-depth historical, artistic, archaeological and architectural analysis, the volume, divided into different and complementary essays, offers a precious contribution to the knowledge of one of the most characteristic and emblematic monuments of the Ostiense territory and allows to better enhance an architectural reality even today substantially unchanged. The vision that has been chosen to give the monument, following an alternative path to traditional treatments, is the multidisciplinary one, linked to the multiple interpretations that the building itself offers to those who approach it. In particular, we wanted to highlight some architectural features of the building, such as the papal bathroom and the frescoes of the staircase, which had never previously been adequately analyzed. The contributions regarding the very recent restoration of a part of the frescoes of the monumental staircase are particularly significant due to the innovations that emerged during the intervention.
