ROMAN HISTORY THROUGH THE GLADIATORS’ LIVES

ROMAN HISTORY THROUGH THE GLADIATORS’ LIVES

”To study how gladiators’ customs and equipments changed it means to study Roman society and the evolution of its military art”. Inspired by such a perspective curators of the ultimate exhibition on gladiators put on display more than 350 artefacts in the core of Rome: at Piazza Navona.
The reason for this location is quite simple: in place of the beautiful churches and fountains we nowadays observe, once upon a time there was a magnificent Roman stadium to host gladiators’ combats, known as Stadium of Domitian. The official shift from Colosseum as a traditional location for these public shows occurred when the Colosseum itself had to undergo renovation works already in the II century AC.
“Gladiators: Arms and armors in the Roman Empire” outlines the history of gladiators’ combat art from its origin – when the gladiator was just looked at as slave-warrior – to its latest times – when the gladiator raised to the status of a modern celebrity.
Venue: Museo dello Stadio di Domiziano, Piazza Navona.
Tickets from €6.
