In the context of the Senigallia Urban Archaeological Project, started in 2010, a new archaeological survey was carried out in February 2013 within the archaeological area of the “Teatro La Fenice", which had been interested by previous extensive excavations between 1990 and 2000. The realization of new targeted stratigraphical inspections and of some handheld core-drills led to a better understanding of the deeper layers, favouring a chronological review of the earliest occupation phases of this sector. In fact, the area, characterized by crossing two urban roads and at least three canonical atrium domus, can be now dated at the end of the third century BC. Also, the new research attested a large reclaim land operation in the second half of the second century BC, which caused the increasing of the all the domus’ floors, as well as the raising and displacement of the road axis NW-SE and the construction of a new logline. The recent discoveries allow us to define the main guidelines of the original project design at the base of the colony of Sena Gallica. Integrating the new data from the “Teatro La Fenice” with the recent discoveries from Via Baroccio, concerning the Roman city walls and a sanctuary with two sacella, is now possible to propose a reliable reconstruction of this important southern sector of the roman city.
