From Olimpus to Baetulo. The Greek olimpic spirit and his legacy in Rome

Place: Museum of Badalona

The Greek city of Olympia, where the Olympic Games were held every four years, had a great sports complex religious and enjoyed a high reputation in the classical period. For the Greek athletes to participate in the Games of Olympia was an honor that came through the physical effort taken to the limit. For the Roman citizens, however, was a sports entertainment individually while at collective level became a mass spectacle that lived enthusiastically in all corners of the empire.
