We love the way Rome is integrating historical preservation with modern urban planning. Check out the write-up from Hyperallergic.

Rome will have what city officials are calling its first “archaeological station” after a construction team recently uncovered 2nd-century CE Roman barracks during ongoing work on the city’s third metro line. Archaeologists and building workers are now working side-by-side on their respective projects to preserve the barracks and prepare for the future; an architect will alter blueprints to integrate the historic site into the structure of the forthcoming Amba Aradam stop, which lies near the Colosseum.

Lying nearly 30 feet underground, the Hadrian-era barracks cover over 10,000 square feet, featuring 39 rooms divided by a corridor decorated with frescoes and floors boasting mosaics. Archaeologists believe the rooms housed the emperor’s Praetorian Guard and their weapons; nearby ground also revealed a grave of 13 adult skeletons, a bronze bracelet, and a Roman coin.
