Augustus in the Politics of His Day: Hero or Tyrant? - Encounters

Augustus in the Politics of His Day: Hero or Tyrant? - Encounters

admission free

Andrea Giardina

The myth of Augustus, born during his own lifetime following his victory in the civil war and his pacification of the Republic, has survived for twenty centuries, maintaining certain constant aspects while also adapting to certain changes.  From the revolutions of the contemporary age onwards, its "success" has taken on strong political and dramatic overtones, acquiring a sacred quality in the legend of the universal Rome and the celebration of the Italian homeland, or becoming a negative symbol of freedom oppressed and denied.
