For the PArCo Thursdays, Aldo Schiavone with “The dynasty of the Severi and its jurists: how the Western State was born”
Thursday 14th, for the series of conferences in the splendid Curia Iulia, PArCo Thursdays, Aldo Schiavone, Professor of Institutions of Roman Law, will let the Constitutio antoniniana come alive: he will focus on the revolutionary edict issued by Caracalla in 212 AD, granting Roman citizenship to all the free inhabitants of the Empire. The decree completed a plurisecular process of extension of civil rights, finalising the ideal premises of universalism and cosmopolitanism.
The event, in collaboration with Electa, confirms the vocation of the Curia Iulia as a living space for debate, opening a series of conferences planned to both strengthen the city’s link with archeology, and analyze the topics of the current exhibition “Roma Universalis. The Empire and the dynasty from Africa“.
Free admission, subject to availability (100 seats, 30 standing)
