GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Below some houses in the neighborhood rule is revealed to the visitor one of the most interesting underground Rome. A door with staircase under Mirrors Palace introduces four floors of Roman structures that document the prolonged use of the area, as can be seen already from the facade of the palace, which preserves traces of Roman walls, medieval and seventeenth-century.
At the lower level, two rooms covered with a barrel vault with the original plaster, which originally were leaning on an alley parallel to the river, belong to the ground floor of the department store of the Flavian period, the Horrea Vespasiani, built by ' Emperor Domitian to preserve foodstuffs which were then distributed in the city.
With a modern staircase leads to the upper "room" column, so called from the column that dominates the center of the environment. This plan is made up of houses of brick, as evidenced by the presence of windows and stairs, here stood a yard which, in accordance with a common Roman houses, allowing the circulation of air and light to pass through to the most interior. The lack of decorations is due to the popular character of housing, but does not make it less sensitive to the charm of the past surrounding these buildings. Rather, they express the reality of a people who work and live in simple crafts, as workers, transporters and small traders.
Next, we move to the upper floor of the warehouses domizianei, with small rooms paved with mosaic tiles in geometric black and white, and terracotta pipes for the passage of water. Another courtyard retains traces of plaster painted in imitation of marble mirrors in homes richest. Probably here stood an old laundry (fullonica). The site was also widely popular in the Middle Ages, as evidenced by the discovery of piles of amphoras, shells and animal remains, which show the presence, at that time, the corporation of Vaccinari (who worked pigmeat) here that exercised the 'activities.
