2.30 PM - Associate Professor Enrica Sciarrino, All roads lead to Rome: about old roads and street activities

There is no doubt that the Romans were responsible for laying down the foundations to road engineering among other things. The first part of this talk by Associate Professor Enrica Sciarrino will deal with how roads were constructed and the logic behind it; in the second part we will look at some satirical scenes and focus on the type of social activities and interactions that went on in the streets of Rome.
