    Augustus' house

Augustus' house. Domus Augustea

Roma
Archaeological sites

 

The house of the emperor Augustus,  on the Palatine Hill, is not only a place with a lot of history, but also one of the most refined and elegant examples of Roman pictorial decoration in a private setting. The spaces that today can be visited are accessed by  a ramp with a barrel vault entirely faced, both on the ceiling and walls, with frescoes;  the two small rooms on either side  were probably  used to host visitors  whereas the final room, on the highest level, was for the emperor's private and exclusive use. . The expressive style of the décor dates the rooms to the mid  "second style",  between the late first century b.C. and the early first century A.D.:  the official halls, where guests were hosted, are clearly more austere, whereas Augustus' private study presents fantasy and airy motifs, highlighted by the well-preserved brightness and colour.
