Abstract

This essay investigates the area of Porta Ercolano, the first entrance to the ancient city to be rediscovered at the beginning of archaeological excavations in the second half of the eighteenth century. Beginning from the interpretation of the stratifications of the Samnite and Roman gates, the subject of countless views of foreign travellers between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, this research analyses the issues related to accessibility and the fruition of the access point, suggesting solutions aimed at its improvement and achieving wider recognition for its significance within the defensive system.
