A journey into the past to discover the Roman origins of Cremona


The deconsecrated basilica of San Lorenzo houses the Archaeological Museum which contains material from the Roman period that emerged in Cremona from the nineteenth century until the recent excavation of Piazza Marconi. Inside the museum an interesting thematic itinerary reveals the image of the Roman city, with a deepening of various aspects related to public space, private space and the necropolis.
Leaving the museum we walk to Corso Matteotti, ideally along what was the Roman decumanus to get to the paved road of Via Solferino where you can observe upclose two important remains of cardo and decumano streets at approx. 4 feet from street level. The walk continues to Piazza Stradivari through the area of the Roman forum and to Piazza Marconi, to see the remains of a beautiful domus (I Century BC - I century AD) testifying to the presence in the area of a residential luxury area.
