About

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

LET'S PARTNER

ACADEMIC PARTNERS

St. Stephen's School

St. Stephen's School in Rome is a prestigious academic institution that features as one of its core experiences an immersive study of Ancient Rome. Now an academic supporting institution of the institute and Ancient Rome Live, the Institute developing an original series on the Ancient Economy in Rome and videos on Latin inscriptions for the current students and all students of ancient Rome.

NC State University

Virtual Rome spring program with NCSU College of Design - The Institute virtually hosts an architecture of ancient Rome lecture series, including urban planning, building materials, Pantheon, Colosseum, Imperial Baths, and a live walk through the city, for students from the College of Design. At the culmination of the lectures, a select group of students will continue the program with an intense two week session to produce original content with drawings, computer modeling, animation and more, addressing some of ancient Rome's thorniest engineering and architecture issues. How did they do it? It's an opportunity for architecture students to immerse themselves in the materials and construction process that have withstood the test of time.
