Tradition and modernity

Like the rest of the complex, the rooms of the Domus Sessoriana are derived from the ancient cells inhabited by the Benedictines, Cistercians and Carthusians monks that since the tenth century have alternated in the monastery built next to the Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem by Pope Benedict VI. The cotto floors, the lime finishing on the walls are preserved from the old structure and the furniture crafts manufactured following precise indications given by the Superintendence.

The Domus is the only facility in the world to be located within an archaeological complex, annex Castrense amphitheater, where shows with gladiators and fights between men and beasts were held.
