In 2010 in Savelletri of Fasano (Brindisi) a preliminary archaeological excavation was conducted in a wide area destined for a parking lot along the coastal road to Monopoli in order to establish the presence of structures of archaeological interest in a high risk area in the immediate vicinity of the necropolis and the walls of the In Brindisi, during the renovation of a flat on the ground floor of a building in the historic center of the town, structures and pot-tery of roman and medieval age were found. The oldest structural traces relate to a wall in tuff blocks that delimits a Roman insula and a road of the urban network, of which the earthern pavement and the sidewalk remain. The structure in blocks borders the south-east side of a space in front of the entrance of a domus whose floors were found beyond the perimetral wall of the building, below the adjacent medieval temple of S. Giovanni al Sepolcro. A phase subsequent to that of the construction of the road and the insula is documented by a sequence of layers of leveling that raised the level of road and of the floor inside the insula. The occupation of the site during the Middle Ages is documented by a wall built on the layers of obliteration of the domus and by the pottery found in a pit.
