The name Theoderic's Palace usually refers to the architectural remains of a building overlooking the present Via di Roma. From the mid-19th century, after the chance discovery of some floor mosaics, the palace has aroused the interest of many scholars.
According to some of them, the building is the remaining part of a 7th-8th century gatehouse erected for the surveillance of the residence of the exarchs.
Other scholars believe instead that the remnants originally represented the atrium-arcade (ardica) of the former church San Salvatore ad Calchi. Sources report the existence of this place of worship and notify its almost complete demolition in 1503.
