Description

Domus Aurea is a large palace on Esquiline Hill built by the emperor Nero after the great fire of Rome (64 AD) . Until the Renaissance, the beautiful decorations remained hidden inside until some artists, including Pinturicchio and Raphael, began to copy them and make them public. After its opening to the public some years ago, the ruins of Domus Aurea were again closed due to the collapse of a ceiling in 2009.

I've read today in the newspaper that Domus Aurea is going to re-open in two years. The works to consolidate the area after the collapse of two years ago will be start at the begin of 2011.
