Aim of the volume is to identify and analyse the main locations (and the buildings in them) of the imperial city of Roma (Augustus – Severan Dinasty), where individuals and groups interacted. These are places of worship, places of games and entertainment, public or private baths, places of personal care or first aid, places of economic and political exchange, collegia. The study of the location of buildings in space; of the interaction between space and buildings, or/and between spaces and people, or/and between individuals within the spaces is the main goal that each of the volume essays must pursue. Attention must be paid to the relation between spaces and the people (individuals or groups) in it: any description of buildings, instead of looking at the protagonists themselves, must relate to mechanisms of social interaction.

Abstract

Aim of the volume is to identify and analyse the main locations (and the buildings in them) of the imperial city of Roma (Augustus – Severan Dinasty), where individuals and groups interacted. These are places of worship, places of games and entertainment, public or private baths, places of personal care or first aid, places of economic and political exchange, collegia. The study of the location of buildings in space; of the interaction between space and buildings, or/and between spaces and people, or/and between individuals within the spaces is the main goal that each of the volume essays must pursue. Attention must be paid to the relation between spaces and the people (individuals or groups) in it: any description of buildings, instead of looking at the protagonists themselves, must relate to mechanisms of social interaction.
