Paper for this conference presents my doctoral research, which is focused on the transformation of late ancient cities. S In the centre of my interest are northern Italian cities in the 5th and 6th century AD. At this time the transformation took place not only in the entire ancient civilization, but also in its individual partial aspects (eg. cities). Classical ancient city full of monumental architecture incorporated into a wide business network, demographically and spatially large changed in many cases in Late Antiquity and transformed into early medieval relatively small, self-contained and isolated fortresses that stand out for their fortifications. Does it mean that these characteristics are marks of decline and fall, or vitality (life expectancy) of the classical concept of the ancient city?
