April 21, 2018 will be the anniversary of the foundation of Rome, the Birth of Rome, in earlier times called Dies Romana. According to the legend, Romulus founded the city of Rome on April 21, 753 BC. This year in Rome there will be a week full of celebrations throughout the historic center and also Aurelia Residence will make its contribution.

We will offer to our Guests who book directly on this site a Dinner-Apericena on our Roof Garden, instead of 10 Euros per person.

Exhibition on ancient Roman Weapons

Through contacts with the authorities in charge and the aid of experts and authors of books on the subject, Aurelia Residence will show some original exclusive Roman army artifacts belonging to the Republican, high and late imperial periods.Upon reservation, the items can be explained individually, ad Guests will be able to study them and handle them personally through the help of experts.

For anyone involved in the reenacment, this event is even more interesting because for some of them it is possible, upon expert assistance, even to touch them with hands!

Have you ever wondered what effect it has in your hands a gladius, a helmet or an authentic pugio? Are you sure that the reconstructed weapons that you normally use, however beautiful and look similar to the original, really are? Generally no, indeed, often the real effect is surprisingly different.

 

You will find on the Exhibition:

  • gladi
  • pugiones
  • helmets
  • plumbatae
  • “barbaric” weapons, Celtic and Hispanic
