Ancient Rome Live

From The American Institute from Roman Culture

The American Institute for Roman Culture has been active in Rome for over 17 years with teaching and excavations and heritage preservation initiatives. In the past five years AIRC have become a real online leader on various social media platforms, amplified by Darius Arya’s international TV hosting and collaborations with the city of Rome, museums of the city of Rome, national superintendency, MiBACT, and a robust amount of travel throughout Italy and throughout the Roman Empire.

These accumulated experiences and travels have become the content on Rome and Empire that we share on Ancient Rome Live.

To provide unique access to ancient Rome, its empire, and its legacy. To serve as an educational forum to explore:

- Architecture, engineering, artistic legacy
- Multiculturalism and migration
- Economics
- Food and agriculture
- Cultural continuity and evolution over 3000 years
- Ancient religions
- Heritage preservation


Collaborating for shared success

We are proud to partner with the following organisations, to further education about ancient Rome, and free access to original and engaging content.

We’re always on the lookout for new partners to help in this mission.
