The Romans have played a huge part in the way we construct our lives from buildings to the government. Official state and federal buildings are inspired by their architecture. Our modern day stadiums replicate the Roman amphitheater. So many sport arenas all over the world are reminiscent to ‘The Colosseum’ (70-80 CE). Pottery shards would be used with numbers to keep the crowds organized just as we use tickets today. Humans have always been complex, using art as a tool that opens us to continue to grow, learn, and evolve. For thousands of years societies influenced and shared each other’s cultures. The Romans adopted from others such as the Greeks and the Etruscans before them. Their empire led to growth for other societies and cultures to become a mixing pot that opened doors to innovation.
