On the track of Augustus

October 11-12, 2014

On the occasion of the bimillennial of Emperor Augustus’s death, CRT Association – Archaeological Group in VIcenza and Cultural Association Rodopis – Experience Ancient History organise, in partnership with the municipality of Vicenza, a two­days event (11-­12 October 2014) which will alternate lectures by young university researchers and guided tours to the main sites of the ancient Roman Vicenza.

Lectures (which will be delivered in morning hours at Astra Theatre in Vicenza, Contrà Barche 53) will examine several aspects of Augustan politics and ideology, with a specific focus on the coeval situation of the then­recently reformed X Regio, which ancient Vicetia municipium belonged to. In the afternoon of the two days, all participants will have tha chance to visit the Naturalistic-
Archaeological Museum and the principal sites of the Roman Vicenza.
