    Abstract

    In 1989 the rooms of a Roman residence, a domus, were brought to light in the centre of Rimini (Italy). It seemed a discovery like any other.. But archaeologists discovered one hundred and fifty surgical instruments. It is the richest and most important set of Roman medical equipment ever found. Starting from the description of this discovery, the documentary attempts to draw the historical figure of the surgeon and the different facets of his work.
