Walking for Transport and Leisure in the City of Rome*

(p.262) 11 The City in Motion
Rome, Ostia, Pompeii: Movement and Space.

Elizabeth Macaulay‐Lewis

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses two basic, yet fundamental questions: how does the study of space inform us about the nature of walking in Rome and how does movement through a space allow us to understand the construction, purpose, and meaning of that space? It proposes a new approach to the study of movement in the city of Rome by establishing an ‘archaeology of walking’, utilizing archaeological evidence and the Forma Urbis Romae (FUR) alongside the ancient texts, to identify different experiences of walking in the city of Rome and the nature as well as the atmosphere of Rome's streets, sidewalks, and portico complexes.

Keywords:   space, walking, Rome, Forma Urbis Romae, streets, sidewalks, porticoes
