HE IS FAMOUS FOR HIS EXCAVATIONS OF THE ROMAN FORUM AND FOR HIS DISCOVERIES ON THE SLOPE OF THE PALATINE HILL IN ROME. Boni, on a card 4.5 x 3.5, Palatine, 7XII, 1918, by the Italian archaeologist specializing in Roman architecture who is most famous for his work in the Roman Forum. He directed this project from 1898 until his death in 1925 and his excavations led to many important discoveries.He also worked on the slope of the Palatine hill where he made many more discoveries. He was buried on the Palatine hill in an extraordinary ceremony organized by the government. He developed a strong interest in the ancient Roman religion and wished to see it revived and some of its rituals restored and adopted by the Italian state. When the National Fascist Party came to power he viewed it as an opportunity for a pagan revival.
He is considered an early figure in what scholars later would label as "sacred fascism".
