Abstract

Some buildings in Hadrian’s Villa, as the Maritime Theatre and Piazza d’Oro, show trabeation with a characteristic curvilinear shape, decorated with figured friezes. The dispersal of most of them in public and private collections involves difficulties in replacing the friezes in each building. A new integrated approach applied to the study of the curvilinear shape friezes, allowed us to make new reliable assumptions about the replacement of the architectural decoration. Starting from digital survey of the original fragments, and of the still preserved masonry in situ, is possible to acquire an amount of information useful to recompose the figurative cycles of the Maritime Theatre and of the southern pavilion of Piazza d’Oro. The study of decorative architectural system based on the new methodological approach and the comparison of the formal and metric features obtained with those of the architectural remains in the Villa, allowed us to propose synthetic solutions on which the virtual reconstruction assumptions can be based.
