Amphitheatre of Nîmes and Antique Théâtre d' Orange selection
Once upon a time...
From the Rhône to the Pyrenees, Georges Mattia has studied the vestiges of the Roman Empire stretching from Scotland to Egypt, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Danube. The region was at the heart of a first wave of globalisation, when the commerce of wine and raw material was in full swing. The author takes the reader on a journey to discover this rich regional heritage. An entire people comes to life again: gladiators, glassblowers, navigators, potters, winegrowers and enologists, oyster connoisseurs, artists, mosaicists, actors, legionnaires, slaves and emperors...a veritable Rome in a different place!
