What you'll do

URI VINCIRI VERBERARI FERROQUE NECARI,I will accept being burned, whipped but I will die only with iron, this was the sworn gladiator. If you are in Rome you will surely have entered the museums of our city, witnesses of a civilization by now disappeared and you will have looked behind a shop window what the past has left us, objects, vases, helmets, armor and weapons, and you will surely have wondered which could to be their weight and how these men could prune them. If you are in Rome you will have certainly visited what everyone calls the COLOSSEUM, the Flavian amphitheater, and you will have imagined in front of its majesty how the GLADIATORS fought in the arena and how they trained to satisfy the joy of the public that increasingly asked PANEM ET CIRCENSES (bread and circus). Now you can try it by experimenting on your skin the training and touch the arms and armor of that civilization in a gladiator gym, LUDUS HADRIANI. Experienced masters of historical fencing will make you relive what was happening in the arena.are you ready to go back in time?The time of BLOOD AND SAND. Don't miss this chance, book now! Are you ready to fight?

Valentino

My name is Valentino Di Lorenzo and I am the President of the Rome Aeterna Historical Group, after 10 years as a historical reconstructor I got involved in rebuilding a real GLADIATURE GYM, a LVDVS GLADIATORIVS, 100 meters from the beautiful archaeological site of the emperor's villa Adriano, I have always loved martial arts, kung fu etc, slowly I decided to study our MARTIAL ARTS, as gladiators fought in the arenas of the Roman empire, I trained many people and created gladiators in other historical re-enactment groups we show Rome in the world even when playing. Assisted by my co-host and associate Cristina
