Visualization of Golden House of Nero | Author: Jean-Claude Golvin
Visualization of Golden House of Nero in Rome. The Golden House of Nero, also called Domus Aurea, was a Roman palace Emperor Nero located between the Palatine and Esquiline hills. Construction works began in 64 CE and were conducted until 68 CE. They were discontinued after the emperor’s death. It was in the “Golden House” that Nero spent his last day of life in 68 CE.
This investment was met with huge opposition and unpopularity by the Romans, mainly due to the high costs associated with, among other things, the shocking splendour of the decor. Due to this state of affairs, the project was never completed. Ancient descriptions and remains discovered during the excavations have survived to our times.
