Made from a project by Amaro Isola, the archaeological park was realized in the Quadrilatero district, the area of Turin lying on the ruins of the ancient roman settlement on the back of Porta Palazzo Market. After a period of degrade, the whole area has been subject to a real rebirth over the last decade, which brought to the growth of pubs and fashion clubs.
The archeological park aimed at connecting the Roman city with modern Turin. From the Roman doors (Porte Palatine) starts the ancient Roman road, flanked by trees and red-bricked columns. Toward Corso Margherita a bastion has been built, similar to the original one which was destroyed by Napoleon.
