Ancient Rome

The legendary eternal city… its eternity may be debated: some maintain that Rome is not one city but several that rose one after the other on the same place, each with different civilization, language, mentality and people. What cannot be argued though is that for over five centuries the Roman Empire managed to maintain an impressive continuity of culture and language while spreading all around the Mediterranean sea and conquering most of Europe. Basically a people of soldiers, that nevertheless left a deep mark in history and produced plenty of remarkable works of art and literature, many of which you’ll find depicted here.
