The site of Palazzo Pignano in the Province of Cremona is known, above all, because of a large villa built in the Late Roman period (4th-5th centuries AD).

Abstract

The site of Palazzo Pignano in the Province of Cremona is known, above all, because of a large villa built in the Late Roman period (4th-5th centuries AD). As earlier studies have shown, the area had already been occupied for several centuries before the buildings of Late Roman period. It continued to be inhabited for a lenghty period after the villa was abandoned. The last archaeological excavations (2016-2019) have allowed to acquire new data on the occupation in the imperial age (especially of the chronological period of second half of the 1th-early 2th cenutury AD) in the so-called rural-living sector, where remains of a small room were found with clay and wood walls and a probably mosaic floor in white and grey tesserae. Further investigation were undertaken in the pars dominica of the late antiquity complex in order to define the plan of two rooms (nn. 12a; 17) excavated in the past with portions of mosaic floor.
