Milan – Mediolanum, 380 AD approx. – Well I thought it was interesting & I could of used it in my class!

Milan – Mediolanum 380 AD approx

In the images below I have tried to reproduce an unprecedented Milan: my personal 3D reconstruction – very imaginative to tell the truth, although many monuments really existed and placed in the exact position where they were in Roman times.
I made this three-dimensional to get an idea of ​​how life in the Mediolanum of the time could actually be, with brick or wooden houses, the imperial palace, the triumphal arch, the circus, the Herculean baths, the amphitheater , the theater, the temples scattered around the city, the doors, the Ambrosian basilicas (basilica martyrum, apostolorum, virginum and dei propheti) and more.

Mediolanum
Here we are in Crocetta, this was the arcaded street (Ora corso di Porta Romana)
The basilica today known as Sant’Ambrogio, formerly Basilica Martyrum, consecrated in 386, in the background the Circus
Porta Vercellina (Corso Magenta) the Circus and the Imperial Palace
The Amphitheater, the square building is now San Lorenzo
Temple near the current Piazza Mentana, in the background the Forum
The Forum (Now in its place there is the Ambrosiana and the Santo Sepolcro church
Porta Ticinese and the Carrobbio
The current Piazza Missori, as soon as you entered the city from Porta Romana
Porta Romana and the Via Porticata
The Porta Ticinese area, the Circus, the Imperial Palace and the Forum
Today’s Via Torino at Piazza Santa Maria Beltrade, in the background the Amphitheater
Temple at the entrance of Porta Ticinese (here seen from the inside, in the background the Amphitheater
The current Piazza Missori and the street that led to the Forum, now disappeared

Hypothetical building in place of the Basilica of San Lorenzo
Hypothetical building in place of the Columns of San Lorenzo
