The Capitolium at Brescia in the Flavian Period

Anne Kleineberg


The Capitolium at Brescia is one of the rare well-preserved examples of this temple type in Roman Italy. Large parts of its architecture, interior design and the forum area to which it was connected, can be reconstructed. This case study will provide a systematic analysis of the Capitolium, focusing on the aesthetic and semantic effects of its decorative elements, as well as their correlation and interaction in the creation of specific spatial qualities. Consequently, various aspects - such as the urban setting, architecture and layout, different features of the interior design and the framework of action, i. e., that of ritual performances - will be taken into account.
