Abstract

The excavations conducted by the University of Padua from 2001 to 2011 in the archaeological site at via Neroniana in Montegrotto Terme identified a considerably large and wealthy Roman villa, datable at the beginning of the 1st century A.D. This villa is now being enhanced within the Archaeological Park of the Terme Euganee. A reconstructive hypothesis has been formulated on the basis of the archaeological records and developed through the search of targeted comparisons taken from literary, iconographic and archaeological sources. This hypothesis is aimed to help the visitors understand the features of the ancient building derived from weak structural remains. At this initial stage of the analytical studies, special attention has been given to the volumes as well as the open spaces of the villa. The visual return of the elevation of the colonnades and the wall enclosures were studied from the foundations, the internal organization of the gardens and the architectural and sculptural decoration. Finally, the reconstructive hypothesis has been graphically translated into a perspective drawing and into a computerized tridimensional interactive model.
