The theater in Rome from its dawn to imperial glories

How to describe Rome, its theatrical shows, their popularity, the lives of the actors and protagonists behind the scenes of that distant and fascinating world? These are some of the questions that an exhibition at the Ara Pacis Museum attempts to answer by going beyond the stage representation, with a deliberately dramatic narrative that aims to involve the public and revive the scene and atmosphere that could be felt among the steps of the Roman theatres. During the historical course that goes from the Republic to the Empire. The theatre, in its many forms and representations, also in Rome, as before for the ancient Greeks and Etruscans, has for a long time been the place of maximum artistic expression and an entertainment show. A journey from the first wooden stages to the splendor of the sets of the great amphitheaters to discover the meaning that the theater had for the entire Roman society.
