Today, we still make murals, which were created by the Romans. This piece tells about a man who is making the biggest mural in the world. I selected this piece because murals were invented by the Roman Empire, and we still create them today.
Along with murals, the Romans also made mosaics. This article explains what different things on mosaics mean, and how to understand them. I chose to add this article to my citation because it can help teach people how to understand these mosaics, specifically the Christian ones.
The Collusseum, one of the most famous Roman pieces of architecture has been an inspiration for sports stadiums. This article says how, recently, architects think that huge stadiums are a thing of the past, and they should be smaller and more durable. I picked this article because the architect says how the stadiums were meant to last 30 years, while the colooseum has lasted thousands, and that they should use it as an inspiration.
The Romans had many architectural styles that we use today, most famously, the dome. This article is about the dome on the US Capitol building, and how they repaired it. I chose this article because this dome is one that many people know about.
Roman writing and language inspired many languages to exist, such as French, and Italian. The article is about how Emoji, the “language” of emojis, is the most spoken “language” in the world. I selected it because lots of languages have evolved from Latin, and this language is one of the most recent.
In the Roman Empire, they spoke mostly Latin. This video tells about how different languages evolve and change. This video is important because lots of languages originated from Latin, such as Romanian, French, and Italian.
The Romans had different ways to become citizens. This article tells about DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which is the program that protects immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. I selected this article because like the USA right now, the Roman Empire wanted only specific people to have citizenship, and others not to. We are reliving history, in a way.
Roman law has greatly impacted the way the United States is run. Basically, this article is about the different responsibilities and rights of American citizens. This is a good article for my curation because the different rights that Americans have are similar to the rights of the Romans.
