The Mausoleum comes back to life

The Mausoleum

The Mausoleum of Augustus is an important burial monument dating back to 1st century BC and housed the remains of Emperor Augustus and other Roman nobles. Augustus decided to build it after conquering Egypt.

The Mausoleum will be brought back to life through a major restoration project aimed at its preservation, divided into two distinct phases to allow consolidation of the existing structures and enhancement to enable its new use. Once the restoration is complete, the Mausoleum will be open to the public as a museum, free of architectural barriers and accessible to all.

The monument will thus become part of city life once again, surrounded by a renovated pedestrian area, green spaces and a wide staircase leading to the archaeological portion of the monument.

Past and present meet in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
