The Crypta Balbi was a large colonnaded courtyard, part of a thetre built within the Campus Martius in the centre of modern day Rome.
The site was inhabited or used for various purposes right up until the present day, giving us a window into the urban history of Rome. The peculiarity of the Crypta Balbi, in the context of the Roman National Museum, is that it is a museum of urban archeology, which researches and documents the evolution of that space, its settlements and its intended uses over the centuries.
Particular attention is paid to the findings that document craft activities (materials, tools, productions) carried out in the place in the post-classical and early medieval age, highlighting the continuity of the work and, also, the quality of the products, generally considered "obscure" in centuries, between the VII and X.
