Basic knowledge of Roman history
The course wants to reproduce the historical development of Roman law, both public and private. Primary objective is to let students achieve a general view of a millenary juridical experience, in its persistent chracteritics as in its turning points, evaluating links between changings in law techniques and in material and cultural contexts.

Lectures, always intitutional, will be opened with a review about essential peculiarities of roman juridical experience, to frame some historical pictures: monarchy and proto-republican age, middle and late republic, principate from Augustus to Severes, late Empire and Justinian's age
