The costumes and traditions of the ancient Roman civilisation emerge from the rebuilding of the characteristic ‘domus’, reachable through a narrow ‘vestibulum’, decorated with propitiatory symbols.

In the middle of the house there is the ‘atrium’, decorated with frescos and a mosaic floor of great quality. This is one of the most important rooms and works as a junction amongst the other rooms.

Dinner, important moment in social life, was consumed in a special room, called ‘triclinium’, while guests were received in the ‘tablinum’.

Then there are the bedrooms, or ‘cubicola’, while in the more external part are the ‘taberna’, commercial room, often rented, and the rooms for the slaves.
