Lecture: The Vitruvian foundations in the houses of the Roman city of Baetulo

Tuesday April 20th. 7 pm

20 April 2021 - 19:00 a 20:30

Limited capacity


The Roman architect, engineer and treatise writer of the 1st century BC, Marc Vitruvius describes in his work De architectura, an ideal model of a Roman house for the elites of the time of Augustus: the atrium and peristyle house.

In Baetulo we have two clear examples of this constructive style such as the House of the Dolphins and the House of the Ivy, whose main characteristics we will discover in this lecture, along with those of other outstanding domus, of this and other less canonical styles, which have been preserved throughout the Catalan territory.

A journey into the public and private spaces of one of the most important institutions of Roman society, the family.

Lecture by Ada Cortés, PhD in Classical Archeology and specialist in domestic architecture in Roman times.

Free admission with prior registration.

Limited capacity.

The conference will be broadcast live on the Youtube channel of the Museum.
