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’
