Description Crypta Balbi

Originally the Museo Nazionale Romano was a huge courtyard annexed to the theatre built by Lucio Cornelio Balbo, an important man, close to the emperor Augustus, in the early first century A.D. Now the Krypta Balbi site shows us how Roman society and the urban landscape evolved from antiquity until modern times thanks to its well preserved archaeological layers.
