It is the year 52 I.C. For four hundred years since the founding of the Republic, Rome has been the richest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis populated by a million people, the epicenter of an expanding empire. The Republic was founded on the principle of common power and never allowed a only man to have absolute control. But these principles are strongly shaken and gnawed by corruption and excesses. The ruling class became overly wealthy, and the old Spartan values of discipline and social unity were forgotten. There is a huge difference between the social classes. The political and legal systems prove to be full of cracks, and the power is almost exclusively of the army. A drama that abounds in the intensity of love and betrayal, describing the relationship between slaves and masters, husbands and wives. ROME – carefully observed in times when the Republic was about to disappear, and the Empire was the one to take its place. The original ROMA / ROME series raised questions and gave rise to discussions and controversy. It is a production that involved work of enormous proportions, both in terms of historical research and the efforts and resources used.
