Il Grande Incendio di Roma - The Great Conflagration of 64 A.D

On a sweltering summer night over 2,000 years ago, Roma, home to over two million inhabitants, erupted in a 9-day firestorm that would destroy 10 of its 14 rioni (neighborhoods). This colossal calamity left thousands dead and some 200,000 homeless. What was the cause of such monumental destruction? Come join us as we explore the nature, scope, and mystery of this capital conflagration which would change the face of Rome forever. Presented by Professor Joseph Spedaliere.
