A real archeological site
The Soprintendenza Speciale per il Colosseo e l’Area Archeologica Centrale di Roma (Special Superintendency for the Colosseum and the Central Archaeological Area of Rome) is a body of the Italian Ministry of Culture and Tourism whose mission is to protect, manage and enhance some of the most important monuments and archeological sites in the world including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill and the Domus Aurea.
In 2011, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism gave the Special Superintendency full autonomy – at administrative, scientific and organizational level – in managing these worldly famous sites.
Electa publishing specializes in architecture, archeology and design and works as a service supplier for the Special Superintendency, in compliance with Ronchey law. In partnership with Coopculture, Electa provides a number of services to the Special Superintendency. Specifically, Electa is in charge of book publishing, merchandising, the management of the book shops and the organization of exhibitions and events aimed at promoting the archaeological sites and the knowledge of the ancient world.
