Since 2005, the University of Trieste has been excavating the “house of the dancing putti”, which is named after the subject of one of its most prized mosaics. The most recent stage of the house’s development dates from the 4th century, including the peristyle looked on to by the room with the dancing putti mosaic, a generous kitchen, the bath area, and other rooms used by the family of the owner, who was probably a wealthy notable of the time. To the east, the house faced a broad paved street flanked by arcades that would have protected travellers from the elements.
