Gli scavi di Ocriculum nella cultura neoclassica e antiquaria
The remains of the ancient Roman town, crossed by the Flaminia road and lapped by a bend of the Tiber, are located in a natural landscape of significant beauty, perfect synthesis of archaeology and nature that remained unchanged throughout centuries. Excavations were conducted here from a very early period, especially from 1776 to 1784, when a great quantity of material was removed. The archaeological excavations carried out in Otricoli in the second half of the Seventeenth century together with discoveries in Herculaneum, Pompeii, Stabiae and other cities of ancient Italy, contributed during the Neoclassical period to the rediscovery of classical ideals in art and architecture, partly already rediscovered during Humanism and the Renaissance in Italy.
