Abstract

“The Romans were enlightened legislators, Big colonizers, skilled Entrepreneurs. Chosen a place to settle down at the intersection of two streets, on the banks of a river, traced with ruler and square the typical plant of the straight city. They wanted the city had one defined pattern, tidy, extremely clear, they wanted to orientate and go at ease. The straight line well suited to the severe nature of the Romans”. In these terms, Le Corbusier refers to the work of the Romans for which it is the "straight line" that becomes the rule ordering not only the forma urbis but also of road layouts and viae stratae, that will be implemented from the fourth century BC. The intent of this essay is to trace and outline, through the ancient paths, a cognitive journey to investigate the techniques and the works of the ancient people: representation of deep knowledge, manifesto, even today, of courageous policies, large programs and deep expertise. From the Regina Viarum, the The Appian Way, we start to discover traces of viae who ruled the connections in the Phlegraean area, identifying layout configuration of Domitiana and Puteolana viae.
