Description

Comprehension of the Roman experience is conceived through the exploration of antiquity: close examination of artifacts and ideas that the Romans encountered in their everyday lives. Myriad ways in which the city was perceived to the ancients stemmed from the ramifications in the physical fabric of the city they experienced. The interpretation of a Roman life is made up of minute incidences and events, one of them being the internal experience of a person, in relation to entering the private realms of a house. At the time of Rome’s transition from the Republic to the Empire, the articulation of an emotional experience that sprang from a spatial relationship with an interior of a house attracted writers and artists as an ideal escape from the turmoil. After Pompeii became Rome’s colony in 80 BC, stylistic changes that occurred in Rome during the transition emerged in the art and architecture Pompeii’s houses and villas, expressing the ideal of inwardness, beauty, and tranquility in an enclosed private space through elaborate construction and decoration of interior spaces.
