Romanorum Vita, A History of Rome throughout May in Tarragona

Romanorum Vita, A History of Rome throughout May in Tarragona

Tarragona. Costa Dorada. The Deputy Mayor of Tarragona Heritage, Rosa Rossell, the Deputy Director General of the Fundació "la Caixa", Elisa Duran, and the representative of "la Caixa" in Tarragona, Amparo Martinez inaugurated the exhibition Romanorum Vita . A history of Rome. Obra Social "la Caixa" and the city of Tarragona in Catalonia for the first time present an exhibition that seeks to explain historical disclosure, as has never been made so far, how people lived in Roman cities. This is an exhibition that invites visitors to see, smell, hearing and, ultimately, to live for a while as did the Romans. To achieve this, we recreated a fragment of a Roman city in full imperial era, the first century AD. In order to do this reconstruction, the Commissioners were based on descriptions in the literary and archaeological evidence of 2,000 years ago to rebuild, actual size, some of the different spaces that make up the city. For years, archaeologists and historians devote special attention to reconstruct the daily lives of ancient peoples. Literary texts and archaeological discoveries allow us to know exactly how many cities were organized and how people were living there. But even in the case of the best preserved Roman cities like Pompeii, it is difficult to imagine the activity that lived on the streets: business, the smells, the forms of expression or religious people: all swarming around that big stages of the senate, the forum, the theater or the circus. Establish parallels between the Roman towns and our cities today is another objective of the sample. In the Roman city, such activity is not stopped even for a moment, especially after a decree from Caesar banned chariots and movement of animals during the day to avoid accidents. That is why the day the streets were safer, but at night the noise grew remarkably. It was not easy to sleep in a Roman city. Also explained how establishing social relations between citizens of different classes. In Roman cities, rich and poor living mixed. Everyone shared the discomfort of a crowded city: noise, odors and occupation of pavements by shopkeepers and artisans. The exhibition detailing other important elements in public life, such as politics or religion. The streets were, in this sense, areas of coexistence and religious spaces. At the corners there were small shrines dedicated to deities protecting the neighborhood and their neighbors. When the election nears, the advertising companies to know the candidates gave election: his name painted on the walls, in proclaiming the virtues and hire people to ask citizens to vote.
