Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide an overview of the relationship between Rome and the Italian communities from the mid-Republican to the late imperial age and to examine the local administration of the cities in Roman Italy from a historical and institutional perspective.

Program

The module includes:

- an analysis of the main events in Roman history from the Republic to the Early Empire and their consequences from a political and administrative point of view (first part);

- the study of Roman institutions, with particular emphasis on topics such as Roman and Latin citizenship, local government, urban culture and social relations (second part);

During the whole module, a selection of primary evidence (literary, epigraphic, numismatic, archaeological sources that are useful to the historical reconstruction of the institutional structures of Roman cities) will be examined, read and commented.

The complete syllabus is provided to students during the first lesson, and published on the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it.
