Abstract:The extensive physical alterations to the city of Rome in the Fascist period have arguably created what I refer to as a ‘Fascist filter’, which will be tentatively discussed here. This paper investigates perceptions of what I refer to as “low status ruins” from antiquity in the modern city of Rome, focusing on the Servian wall in the context of the Termini train station in Rome. What are the possible functions, meanings, and practical implications of ruins in a modern cityscape? How are they ‘remembered’ or envisaged as (classical) heritage? I will in the following tentatively discuss the possible contextual value of Ancient ruins in Rome, focusing on the legacy of the ‘Fascist filter’
