Abstract

Since 2006 the University of Bologna has been conducted research in the Roman town of Ostra (Ancona, Marche region, central Italy), thanks to an agreement with the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici delle Marche and in particular to the foresight of Giuliano de Marinis. The birth of the city is traditionally linked to the process of Romanization of the Ager Gallicus during the 3rd century BC, in particular after the issue of the Lex Flaminia de agro Gallico et Piceno viritim dividundo (232 BC). The aspect of the center of Ostra in these early stages of urban employment is not well-known, but the latest excavations are instead acquiring more elements about the organization of the north-eastern side of the forum between the 2nd and the 1st century BC. After the acquisition of the status of municipium, the realization of a building with a strong civil connotation linked to the activities of election of magistrates by the citizens is also attested. At last, some aerial surveys and targeted digs, allowing the discovering of several important buildings, monuments and evidence, which are largely contributing to propose a new hypothesis of the urban texture of the roman city and of the ancient roads system.
