Overview

The Auditorium of Mecenate is located in Rome city center

The building, now protected by a roofing, originally had a vaulted roof, and consists of a large hall which is 24 meters long and 13 wide, with a semicircular apse on the bottom which has a staircase with seven concentric steps.

However, the peculiarity of the building is the pictorial decoration, realized at the beginning of the first century AD, which is well maintained both in the niches and on the top, where there is an ornament on a black background with Dionysian scenes and miniature gardens. The steps that distinguish the back wall are too small to let us think it was a theater (idea that, at the time of the discovery, gave name to the place), in fact it is nothing but than a monumental fountain.
