Augustus: The Most Cunning Politician Ever On The 2000th Anniversary Of His Death

Augusto-Pontefice_Palazzo-Massimo-PARTMeasure wasn’t Augustus thing: he turned the Roman Republic into an empire with him as its first emperor, rebuilt much of Rome and was so popular that he got a month named after him. It wouldn’t be far-fetched to say he is the most cunning politician ever.

This year Rome will be celebrating the 2000th (!) anniversary of Augustus death with an exposition at the Scuderie del Quirinale. The exhibition will be open from October 18 2013 to 9 February 2014. The Scuderie del Quirinale Museum is located at Via XXIV Maggio 16, and can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes taking the bus 40 from the Termini Station (get off at the stop Nazionale/Quirinale).
