One of the interprets of antiquarian studies in Modern Age was Alonso Chacón. He was educated during the mid-sixteenth Century mainly in Spain, then in Rome. His role in the development of researches ran parallel to the development of new position of the Roman Church in the late 16th Century. His interest in realia, i.e., the materials and documents perceived as primary sources of history understood in a global sense, make him a pioneer in setting the trends and methodologies which would be later employed by Cassiano dal Pozzo. The period Alonso Chacón spent in Rome, between 1567 and 1599, afforded him the opportunity to know monuments related to pagan and Christian history of the town and to introduce new point of view, virtually useful to overpass the divorce between ecclesiastical erudition and ancient art.
