via di porta lavernale

Original marble slab street sign. 100 x 50 cm


In Roman mythology, Laverna was the goddess of the underworld. She had her own sanctuary in Rome near the city gate named after her, Porta Lavernalis. Before going out to steal, thieves would go to seek her blessings. The street that runs there today is called Via di Porta Lavernale. De Michele made a duplicate of the marble slab street sign and replaced the original with the duplicate.
