The nomos of an archaic labyrinth seen as a modern neo-ancient  rule

To help his own archaelogical and topographical studies the architect P.M. has fixed his methodological researche on account of his drawing instruments whose invariants let him easy to note and to put in evidence the more important sites of Rome, some of them physically very distant from the historical monuments of the city. The archaelogical data have been analyzed and argumented in comparison with the orography and the geometrical characters of the ancient territories of Rome, and not only those ones, so that the geometrical data catalogue  is subordered to a specific geo-astronomical key-line; furthermore the several scientific arguments interface the typological plots offering unspeakable comparisons with the archaeo-topological models in Rome. To let clearest the different historical ages seen as a labyrinthian culture for the territories the neo-ancient thought has been comparised with the post-modern one to-day overpassed more and more. The need to disclose yet the past mysteries let the ancient world understood and it permits to transfer into the modern digital net grid the special patterns and the unitary models projected to a preservative action and developing. The lecturing of the "Archaeology & Imaginery " visions by P.M. circumstancy the new archaelogical tells and the historical monuments inherited and analyzed with a new archivistic data, new meanings  as add values which must be actualized for a sufferable development of the Bene Comune Roma. Those unitary tells must be preserved to the future generations and by a modern communication they can active a futured city museum, an ancient topos for the modern city, a main topographical knot able to let clearest the Romulus's city design compared with the pope Sixtus Vth's Polis.

A very ancient topographical wisdom permitted an elementary Hearth measuring subordering it to the astronomical laws coded during the observation of the air-Sky movements so to confirm the weight and the value of the invisible relationships which must be practised to-day by modern formats of a visionary realism, natural and theoretical parameters by which mediate the science and mark over the seven Roman hills a strategic and hierarchyc oriented line. A wide energy from the sun, the natural Fire element, drive the bio-electric-magnetic phenomena into the Roman eco-system so to transform its topography into a primary urban design whose hierarchyes become advantageous and energycal. Those unitary calculations mix together the natural parameters loading them to a right enviromental restoration always kept by the Water element which, as a biological safety test, seeks the lived qualities in every foundation and maintain by them the ancient site identity. Such composed code signals at the origin measured through values selected on hearth and in the sky seem utopian data not easily theorized as abstract and closed aristotelic literature: anyway they can have a new character and remain the key line by which discover that primary topographical direction, a virtual and physical double structuring Axis for the anthropic Rome plan discovered by the architect-archaelogist-antiquarian and now presented to the academical world. An invisible Ariadne's thread gives identity to the very ancient urban net grid and let seen inside it the geometrical shapes driven to mythic and symbolic paths, a lost story to be reconstructed by the Roman geo-manthic rules (see Oinokoe at Tragliatella). The hearth-sky-measures are the nomos of the City-State-Rome and belong pragmathically to the ground as movements of the sun in the sky, the Sol Invictus memory linked to the XXI Aprilth Rome's foundation : by those four elements, Hearth, Fire, Water and Air , the ancient were able to reinforce their physical and historical values giving symbolism to the eternal city.

The documentary comparisons and the architectonical measuring on the main Roman site monuments (from Appia antica to Palatino and Coliseum, from Fori to Campo Marzio and faraway to Tivoli, to villa Adriana.....and to more distant places) enlarged a very ancient space-time code inherited by the state and by the religion powers, criteria and rules of a planning model presented for centuries as the unitary character of the city of Rome. The historical forms mediate an old wide abductive tell so to seek for new equilibrium to the oikonomical knowledge and to give back the lost identity dimensions sometime consciously hidden by the power acts, further occasions to stimolate communitary strategies able to assure a widest saving action and a sufferable development. A modern comparison between studioses, administrators, citizen and cultural contractors  must credit that unitary Nomos as term of the Home-City-Oikos, specific topographical testimonial accorded to the astronomical calculation of the April XXIth, the Rome's dies natalis told by Varrone when the season time sun of the XI Calendas Majas rigenerated virtually a natural segment setting up the memory of a topography.
