THE STORY

27 BC Rome is changing, the Republic has passed away, the city becomes a veritable Empire. So begins one of the largest and most elaborate propaganda projects of the history and Studius, the famous artist, was named among the masters of the new imperial workshop. His task is not simple: every action of the new government will have to materialize in stone and in the artist's colors with figures and symbols that make Rome an image of the Empire itself.

Are you feeling to be a talented artist? If you wish to mesure yourself, you are summoned by Studius. Carpe diem, the opportunity must not be wasted! Present yourself at his workshop at 10 Ante meridiem!

Silvia, in the role of a Roman art master, will illustrate how the imperial art workshops have created a style which featured ancient architecture of Rome like a signature, so that they can be set apart from other creations of the rest of Italy and the Empire. You will be protagonist of this important cultural evolution.
