Journey back in time to relive history and discover the life, the culture, the determination and the genius that carved the great
If we could travel back in time and visit Ancient Rome, we would be very surprised to see how many aspects of our society resemble those of 2,000 years ago.
We would learn that we have inherited from this great Empire, many of the objects, concepts, technologies and machines that are part of our contemporary life.
It has been said that the Romans copied,or at least were greatly influenced by Alexandrine Science (that Greek-Hellenistic revolution sparked by Alexander the Great, circa 300-100BC). However it is thanks to the socio-economic conditions created during the Roman Empire and the Romans’ shrewd, selective adaptations of that knowledge that have allowed the spread and preservation of many “ancient technologies” to us.
The JULIUS CAESAR EXHIBITION: MILITARY GENIUS - MIGHTY MACHINES Exhibition was born from the desire to recreate this fascinating period of history, as realistically as possible, to explore and experience the mighty machines, gadgets and clever technologies of the Roman Empire.
Showcasing over 100 exhibits comprising interactive machines, virtual reality displays, reconstructed scaled models, recreated artwork and frescoes the Exhibition is presented covering four themes:
