A Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts Event
Rome's Birthday
This year's Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts asks, "If you had a time machineā€¦" what would you do? Penn Museum celebrates Rome's birthday (April 21, 753 BCE) by inviting guests back through time to explore Italy during the ancient Roman Empire with an afternoon of activities. Visitors can enjoy gladiatorial bouts, try on helmets and shields, and reenact battle formations, as well as enjoy music, food, and arts and crafts. Enthusiasts can also visit the Museum's permanent exhibition, Worlds Intertwined: Greeks, Romans, and Etruscans, and learn more about the history of Italy, from Etruscan to Roman civilizations, by viewing over 1,000 artifacts including marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, gold and silver coins, metalwork, glass vessels, and more. Free with Museum admission. For more information, call 215.898.4000.
