The so-called ‘Baths of Nero’ in Pisa.
This paper deals with the so-called ‘Baths of Nero’ in Pisa, a uniquemonumental evidence of the Roman town Pisae. After a short introductionabout historical and topographic data, the building and its constructionphases are described. The functional and architectural featuresof each room are analysed following the circulation pattern, in order todefi ne the planimetric and architectural type of the building. Particularattention is devoted to Room 4, traditionally considered as an openarea, and here interpreted as a large covered room functioning, perhaps,as a frigidarium. Finally, the dating issues are discussed.
