ITALICA CEIP DUNAS DE DOÑANA European art and culture SOCRATES EUROPEAN PROGRAMME Francisco González Moreno & Francisca Jurado Lorente Matalascañas-Worcester, Abril 2007

To start with…..:

To start with….. Rome was founded about 750 b.C. After a large fight to compete for the Itálica peninsula, the Romans started to spread all over the Mediterranean : Mare Nostrum. To make sure his power in those areas, the Romans, who were soldiers, farmers and builders at the same time, built camps for the army: Castrum. Most of them became towns.

COLONIA AELIA AUGUSTA ITALICA, was the name of the town during Adrianus´ time, it was located five miles (8 kms.) far from Seville (HISPALIS), the capital of the legal district (CONVENTUS HISPALENSIS), next to a tributary of the river Guadalquivir (BAETIS), maybe Ribera de Huelva. It was in a hill that protected it from the flooding of the river in winter.:

It was in a hill that protected it from the flooding of the river in winter. After the battle of ILIPA (206 b.C.) the Roman general Scipio founded a camp where he left an army to keep the Roman sovereignity in the new conquered areas. He called this town ITALICA and, in the course of time, it became a very important city. Part of the mosaic of the Neptune house

Cartago´s army: general Assdrubal. 50.000 pedestrians, 45.000 knights and 32 elephants What the history tells us In the year 206 b.C. Publius Çornelius Scipio defeated the cartagians soldiers in the battle of Ilipa. After the battle, the Roman general decided to leave some veterans and inhuried soldiers in a camp. He called it Italica to remember his homeland. We can imagine the camp like this

Slide 5:

Comic by Gozzini and Uderzo This hospital was located on a hill near the native village which became the first roman village in the peninsula. The priviledged location –next to the river and the fertile lands- contributed to the increasing of amount of people, therefore, 300 years later, two Roman emperors were born in that town. Adrianus Traianus

Slide 6:

In the year 125 b.C. Adrianus was interested in embellecting the cities in the empire, so he granted many of them with money and, of course, he did not forget the city where he was born. A new part of the city –Nova Urbs- was built thanks to this help. The new construction didn´t last very long. The land wouldn´t permit this kind of construction. As a result the walls were broken and the roofs caved in. Map of the excavated area

Slide 7:

Life was going on only in the old section of the city where the servants, artists, ceramists, merchants, etc. lived. The neighbour Seville took the advantage of this to increase its own trade business. Italica was dying little by little …….
