The Athenaeum of Hadrian was located in regio VII near the Capitoline Hill in Rome. Founded by the Emperor Hadrian, it was designated for the promotion of literary and scientific studies and named after the city of Athens. Excavations connected to the Metro C line revealed a complex in the vicinity of the modern Piazza Venezia that has been identified as the site of the Athenaeum.
