ROME (ROMA)

Funeral sculptures became widespread (portraits, marble sarcophagus), with themes which were no longer mythological but Dionysian and civil. There were also examples of monumental art (thermal baths of Caracalla).

The Diocleziano reform (290) extended the artisitic production to the whole Empire, mostly through the construction of imposing buildings (Arch of Galerio in Salonicco, thermal baths of Diocleziano in Rome, Imperial Palace in Spalato).

During the 4th Century, from Costantino to Teodosio, there was a final productive period of Roman art. Administrative centralization and military power, but also an economic and social crisis, were reflected in an austere geometric tendency of forms, accompanied a certain thematic eclectism, due to Christianity and the increasing Germanism.

The solemn representation of the Maestà Imperiale (Imperial Highness) traditional references (exploits of Traiano, Adriano and Marco Aurelio), the celebration of exploits (Victory of the Ponte Milvio – bridge) are the elements which are constituted on the Arch of Costantino, the prefect synthesis of eclectism from the decline and prelude of Byzantinism, evident in the obelisk of Teodosio, the last great work of Roman art.
