Room VI

This occupies the second floor of the central body of the gate, above the entrance arch. In it are displayed six panels concerning the Medieval and Modern sections of the museum. They take up the narrative of the historical and architectural developments of the Aurelian Walls, showing the changing relationship in the Medieval period between the walls and dwellings, the latter shrinking due the progressive population decrease, and, in the XVIth to XXth centuries the most important restoration works accomplished by the various Popes, as well as modifications and new constructions.
