4 different venues between the US and Europe for a great exhibition dedicated to the extraordinary culture and art of Imperial Rome.
During the era of Imperial Rome, from 27 BCE to the 3rd century, Rome as the dominant political, economic and military power of the western civilized world, also achieved its utmost cultural impact. The vast Roman Empire encompassed England in the north, all of continental Europe west of the Rhine and south of the Danube, most of Asia west of the Euphrates, the coastal areas of Northern Africa and all the Mediterranean islands.
Through the exposition of 400 artifacts, (portraits and reliefs, sarcophagi and urns, bronze and marble statues, gemstones, cameos and coins, pieces in ceramic, glass, terracotta and silver), the exhibition illustrated important aspects of Roman culture, both public and private, during the days of grandeur that was Imperial Rome. Every artifact has its intrinsic message, but it is through the sum of the whole that a comprehensive vision of Imperial Rome emerges.
