Abstract: Contracts T2 and T3 of the new Line C of Roma underground are under construction in the historical centre of the city, in an area of great archaeological, historical and artistic value. Significant problems connected to the presence of archaeological remnants, the geotechnical characteristics of the soil, excavation below the water table, and the necessity of minimising the effects on the historical and monumental heritage subsist. This presentation illustrates the methods adopted to evaluate the effects of tunneling and open excavation on the existing monuments and historical buildings, with particular reference to contract T2.
