Abstract

The archaeological area is increasingly seen as a place of connection with the space of the active, cultural and civil life, towards the overcoming of the idea that archaeological sites are places situated on a separate dimension , which is unrelated to everyday life. This tension obviously implies the need for special attention paid to the problems of preservation and protection, but it opens up the fields of action and research to a growing awareness and management of the communicative possibilities and of the opportunities to spread knowledge through physical and direct experience of the site. This process is widely evident in all those cases in which fragments of architecture, frequently discovered by chance in stratified cities, interpose themselves within urban routes, public and also private spaces, providing the opportunity for the construction of an awareness of the history of the places even for a distracted citizen, who is not driven by a particular intention of knowledge and of realization of the idea of widespread museum. But this is also found in the increasing attention paid to the possible, even if temporary, exhibits, achievable within the sites , which allow the general public to a more intense use, and the scholars to an even more depth one, thanks to the use of technologies and techniques, which are less and less invasive in terms of materiality, but more and more effective.
