The dead city of Galeria

The ruins of Galeria are located on a quadrangular tuff spur, at the time this position was an excellent natural defense. The old village is in the Roman countryside to the north of the capital and is bordered to the west by the river Arrone. We have two different versions about the birth of Galeria: to the young generation of this district it is, nowaday, an opportunity to read the territory in which we live, less suburban than a map of Rome shows, a past that that can be born again. The school, through relationships with local associations that are still very interested in Galeria, carries on the project with the hope that over the years we can also awaken an interest for the now abandoned and forgotten monument.
