Abstract

The first archaeological campaign at the so-called Terme di Nerone in Pisa took place in the months of June and July 2017; this is the only roman age building in Pisa that has kept his monumental structure until present time. The investigations carried out between the end of the XIX and the first half of the XX century left many gaps in the understanding of this monument: its floor plan, the destination of some of its spaces, its relationship with the city context, its dating, which is generically set between the I and the II centuries AD, and the knowledge of its late-antique and medieval life, which were totally ignored in the past. The excavation brought to light new spaces and allowed to collect data on the building’s architecture; a necropolis occupying the ruins of the building during the late-antiquity was also identified. Finally, the research focused on the medieval and modern age buildings that had incorporated the ancient structures, changing several times the urban landscape of this district of the town.
