Being among the top celebrated festivities in all Anglo-Saxon countries,…
On March 15th, from 2:00 pm, in the Sacred Area of Largo Argentina in Rome will be played the assassination of Julius Caesar.
The theatrical company ” Gruppo Storico Roma ” will perform the reunion of the Senate, the discussions of the conspirators and the bloody murder of the great Roman leader.
The funeral procession will lead the public to the Roman Forum, where will be proposed other theatrical insertions dedicated to the characters close to the “Divo Giulio”. We will listen to the words of Calpurnia, Caesar’s bride, of Brutus, before friend and then a traitor, and many others.
It was March of 44 B.C, Julius Caesar was preparing for a meeting with the Senate unaware of a conspiracy that would have killed him, organized by personalities related to the Senate of Rome, including the famous Brutus (Marco Giunio Bruto) and Cassio (Gaius Cassio Longino).
The great Caesar was assassinated with several stabs while he was in the Theater of Pompeo. He was killed because over the years he had become more and more powerful, concentrating on himself several charges and menacing the authority and power of the Senate.
His death became one of the most famous episodes of Roman antiquity.
According to someone it became the symbol of the murder of a tyrant in the name of the republic, as for example in the bust of Brutus sculpted by Michelangelo
To others Brutus and Cassius became the symbol of betrayal (Dante, example, put Brutus in the 9th level of Hell, the lowest level, in the mouth of Satan together with Judas).
