Spazio Archeologico Sotterraneo SASS

A journey to the ancient Roman Tridentum 

Spazio Archeologico Sotterraneo SASS

The Sass Underground Archaeological Space, in Piazza Cesare Battisti, in the heart of Trento and symbolic location of Tridentum, offers visitors over 1,700 m² of Roman ruins brought back to light during the excavation works carried out to refurbish and expand the Social Theatre. The findings consist of a long section of the Eastern fortification walls, of an extensive piece of paved road, of parts of houses featuring remnants of mosaics, courtyards and craft workshops.


The ancient Roman city of Tridentum, defined as the "splendidum municipium" by Emperor Claudius in 46 A.D., has been the core of the city's historical growth that has continued non-stop for about 2,000 years, namely from its foundation to the present time. For this reason the place features buildings overlapping different ages, such as the ancient Roman era, which lies under the late Gothic and Early Middle Ages. And then we have the Medieval quarters, the Renaissance palazzo, the 19th century theatre and the contemporary one.
