In this contribution, a multidisciplinary investigation regarding the Roman Amphitheatre in Lecce, southern Italy, is be proposed. In particular, GPR prospecting combined to passive seismic measurements and with a virtual reconstruction of the monument allows deducing some important features of the monument, unknown before. In particular, this is a monument only partially brought to light, and part of it lies under the current Saint Oronzo’s Square. We have investigated about the part still undiscovered of the amphitheatre.
