A powerful religious and political institution, the triumph in Ancient Rome was an event with strong military and economic implications. Not only did it grant the victorious general glory and political fortune, but it also represented the means to make the increasing conquests of new territories tangible and visible to the population of the city. 

Despite its uncertain origin, the triumph was to characterize the political and community life of Rome especially during the Republican period, following the continuous expansion of the Empire, and also became an important propaganda tool. The eternal output of the ceremony, granted to the most successful generals, was the construction of those monumental arches which marked the urbanscape of the city. 

Led by an expert on Roman Archaeology, Veronica Iacomi, this Conversation will give the chance to dive into all of those details of the triumphal arches surviving in Rome which usually remain so elusive during an on-site visit. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of those major Roman monuments, along with an insight of a typical and exclusive ancient Roman ceremony.
