Roma Caput Mundi. Una città tra dominio e integrazione

Roma
Exhibitions

 

This exhibition spreads across the Colosseum, the Curia Julia and the Temple of Romulus in the Roman Forums, telling the story of the origins of Rome to the conquest of Italy, as well as of Rome’s provinces, cultural and religious influences, slavery and ethnic diversity, ancient and modern visions.
The exhibition’s title ,“Roma capitale del mondo” (‘Rome, capital of the world’ or, in Latin, ‘Roma caput mundi’) reprises the ancient metaphor for seeing the city as a global power. However, no attempt is made here to hide the more brutal aspects of Roman rule: the suffering inflicted upon entire communities, wars of pillage, slavery – after all, what great empire (including those of more recent times) has not been built on violence? That said, this is a rich and varied exhibition taking in many aspects of Roman rule.
Romans were fixated on an idea: Rome as an ‘open city’ for other peoples. They practised an integration policy that has never been repeated anywhere on the same scale: purity of line was considered irrelevant, citizenship was easily granted, they were able to liberate slaves with a minimum of fuss, and freed slaves were seen as ‘near-citizens’.
Some contemporary historians follow the line taken by ancient authors, rightly asserting the importance of the moral, cultural and military contribution made over the centuries by this constant enrichment of the population. As such, dominance in war was only one of the facets of Roma caput mundi.
The exhibition reflects all these concepts, expressing them across all three sites through sculpture, reliefs, mosaics, frescos, bronzes and coins, divided as follows:

CURIA

• The manifesto of Roman integration
• Exotic origins
• Rome, Etruscan city
COLOSSEUM
• The two faces of Rome
• The Italy of the Romans
• The revolt of the Italic people
• Romanisation
• Rome, Greek city
• The world in Rome
• The repression of the Bacchanalia
• Jews and Romans
• From possessions to citizens
TEMPLE OF ROMULUS
• The Roman breed: inventions of Rome and Romans, from politics to cinema.

As they work their way through the exhibition, visitors will repeatedly come across the words of writer Edoardo Albinati, offering short explanatory pieces that tell the story and comment on the exhibition’s main themes and some of the works on show.
