The language of the urban domestic architecture as an expression of identity in the Roman world. ÁLVARO CORRALES ÁLVAREZ (Ed.)
This volume reveals the results of the International Seminars “Il linguaggio dell’architettura domestica urbana come espressione d’identità”, which took place in Rome on February 25th, 2020 and “The language of urban domestic architecture as an expression of identity in the Roman world. The African and Eastern provinces”, which was held online on March 18th, 2021. These forums were framed within the line of research of the Archaeology of political spaces: urban domestic architecture of Roman ages developed in Escuela Española de Historia y Arqueología en Roma (CSIC) and the Universidad Pablo de Olavide de Sevilla.
The different case studies analysed throughout the nine chapters of this book make up a significant cast at a spatial level that includes general reflections on Roman houses and their Etruscan and Greek influences, the residential spaces of the city of Rome, as well as the expansion of the lifestyle of Roman society to the western and eastern provinces. For all these reasons, this publication can be considered a solid base and a framework for projecting broader questions about the urban domestic space in the Roman Empire.
