Casa delle vestali

Casa delle vestali

On 23 and 30 September from 6.45pm to 7.45pm for groups of up to 20 people entering the Roman Forum from the Arch of Titus and along the Via Sacra it will be possible to visit the House of the Vestals under the colors of dusk. This exceptional opening, already experienced in July, was possible thanks to the conclusion of conservation works with the preparation of the rooms of the house of the virgin priestesses, in charge of the custody of the sacred hearth of the city. The spaces that can now be visited - among which the room of the lava stone mill stands out, interpreted immediately after the discovery as the room in which the priestesses of Vesta made the mola salsa, a sacred focaccia for the cults linked to the rites they officiated - surround the courtyard of the complex where the circular temple that housed the sacred fire stands.
