After the fire of AD 64, that destroyed the centre of Rome, emperor Nero ordered the construction in the heart of the city a new imperial residence. The residence, covered with rich marbles, gold and precious stones, was called Domus Aurea, the golden house. It was planned and decorated by the most important artists of the period: the architects Severus and Celere and the painter Fabullus. The huge structure included ranges, forests, vineyards, an artificial lake (where after the Colosseum was built), treasures and a colossal statue of Nero, portrayed as a God.
