Sotterranei di Roma

Our association, Sotterranei di Roma (Underground Spaces of Rome), is composed of people who have a passion for Rome and love to discover its treasures -- slowly, with great pleasure, as one would savor a glass of fine wine. Our interests lie in studying, documenting, and valorising Rome's subterranean archaeological patrimony, and we welcome any and all who share these interests, without distinction or any type of discrimination. Our members have a wide variety of skills and capabilities, from speleo-archaeology, to engineering, to manual labor, but each of us contributes his or her professionalism to researching and highlighting the cultural value of archaeological sites.
