ROMAN FOOD

It is a particular activity that is preserved in the memory. It consists of a lunch made with Apicio's recipe book , which is enjoyed after the guided tour of the Roman Villa "El Ruedo", the Iberian settlement "Cerro de la Cruz" and the Historical-Archaeological Museum, where the original presentation is kept, peculiarities and ritual of the Roman banquet. In the course of the same diverse interpretations are realized through the corporal expression (Roman pantomime), that they tell us and they stage diverse myths and legends related to the god Hypnos (that was found in Villa Romana) and on particular passages that in they were produced.

It lasts approximately 3 hours.

Lunch and / or dinner can be held and a minimum of 30 people is needed to do it.

This activity is usually done on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays). CONVIVIUM

It means indifferently "feast", "treat" and also the "set of guests". It is a festive event that goes beyond the simple act of daily eating. It is a social act in which not only food is shared but also fun, knowledge, conversation, gossip, poetry, jokes, gifts, fashions, and in sophisticated environments even much more private things. It is an act of coexistence since the verb coexists means "to live together" as "to eat with".

It is enjoyed after the guided tour of the Roman Villa "El Ruedo", Iberian Village "Cerro de la Cruz" and the Historical-Archaeological Museum. From the hand of the patrician owner of the Roman villa "El Ruedo" we can attend this social act of coexistence, which begins with the reception of the guests in the archaeological site itself to perform the invocation to the "Lares", protective gods of the home "and then accompany us to the dining room where we can taste the menu prepared with the recipe book of the time and served by slaves, who will also make us participants in the rituals of the time, being able to accompany the host to his table and check what it was like to eat" reclining "on a triclinium . Throughout the meal a group of actors will surprise us with a particular recreation of a bacchanal. Finishing with a reading of poetry.

It lasts approximately 2 hours. Lunch and / or dinner can be held and a minimum of 15 people is needed to do it. This activity is usually done on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays).
