In the heart of Res Publica Romana are the Roman projects we work with, support and endorse. All our Cives Romani (full citizens) have an option to pay their annual tax (membership fee) by submitting a Roman project to be included here. Res Publica Romana also works in collaboration with other Roman organisations by organising joint projects with them and promoting their projects here. With this practical, down to earth, approach Res Publica Romana wants to make its contribution for the research, preservation and reinvigorating the Roman culture.
If you want your project to be promoted here, please contact us!

Citizenship project: Cursus Honorum by Cn. Aelius Merula
“As a history teacher, I run a voluntary project with my younger students. They choose to follow a set of criteria/tasks that move them along in the Roman political life. This encourages them to learn about Roman history and politics from the later Roman Republic.
Students, and our teachers, choose Roman names and work their way through the Army and Political life. They later take part in a two day debate wearing togas and supporting their senatorial grouping.
Annually these approximately 28 students also learn basic Latin using the Minimus course and Ritchie’s Latin Primer.”

Project lists Roman aqueducts, amphitheaters, arches, circuses, columns, buildings, mausoleums, walls bridges, gates, roads, theaters, temples and baths from Roman era. Read more.
