João Pedro Xavier and Eliana Manuel Pinho
(Proceedings pages 693–694)


Our aim is the implantation in the terrain of the octagonal peristyle of the Roman villa existing in Rabaçal, at scale 1:2. We will follow, as close as possible, the known Roman procedures, as described by Vitruvius and other ancient sources, and depicted in Roman sculptural reliefs.
