Rome’s most ancient walls? In Termini

Termini. Cornerstone of Modern Rome deals with the fate of one of the oldest and largest tangible remains of ancient Rome: the fourth century BC city wall, incorporated in the city’s symbol of modernity, the central train station of Termini. Through a “heritageography” of the renowned station, the book tells a history of modern Italy and the classical tradition, exploring the dynamic of the interplay of ancient and modern in the Eternal City in the period 1860–1950. Here is the interview with the authors of the book, Arthur Weststeijn and Frederick Whitling.
