Between 1978 and 1982 the Municipality of Rome undertook the restoration of a group of buildings which it owned located between Via del Conse Natorio and the church of SS. Trinita dei Pellegrini in south part ofthe Field of Mars.
This restoration uncovered Roman buildings four stories of which had been presented, two undergroundand two above, which had already been restored and further elevated in the Medieval period.
The archaeological complex of S. Paolo alla Regola, which has been excavated and restored and may currently be visited, is located on the first and second underground levels of the 16th century Palazzo degli Specchi, which contains the Municipal Children’s Library on its first floor and private dwellings on the upper floors.
The area overlooks Via di S. Paolo alla Regola, which follows the path of an republican-age road which linkedthe Circus Flaminius to the flat area of the Field of Mars.
The remains are of warehouses from Domitian’s reign on the 2nd floor below street-level, and the intermediate level includes a courtyard onto which the warehouses face.
On the 1st floor below ground level there are warehouses dating back to the age of Sever us, over which are rooms paved in mosaic from the same period.
