In September 1961, Maiuri wrote “After a few weeks I found and finally opened the street of the Forum of Herculaneum and it seems to me that the city has regained its breath and found its natural centre of life........etc. A great roadway closed to carriages and beasts of burden, open only to pedestrians, with low and wide pavements/sidewalks, ample gutters for the disposal of water and a shady portico for walking in during the hot hours of the day and also offering a little cool air to us too. It was the large street of the ancient town that runs today, at a depth of 15 and more metres, parallel to the roads of present-day Resina.”
See Maiuri, A. (2008). Cronache degli scavi di Ercolano, 1927-1961, introduced by Mario Capasso. Sorrento, Franco Di Mauro Editore s.r.l., (p.117)
(“A distanza di poche settimane trovo finalmente aperto la vie del foro d’Ercolano e mi sembra che la citta abbia riacquistato il suo respire e ritrovato il suo naturale centro di vita…..etc. Una grande via chiusa ai carriaggi e alle bestie da soma, aperta solo al transito pedonale con larghi e bassi marciapiedi, capaci cunette per lo smaltimento delle acque e un portico ombroso da passeggiarvi nelle ore calde del giorno e da offrire presto anche a noi un po’ di frescura. Era il gran Corso della città antica che corre oggi, a 15 e più metri di profondità, parallelamente al Corso dell’ odierna Resina.”)
