The ancient Romans built long roads to connect the most distant provinces with the capital of the empire. Made as straight as possible to minimize distances, these infrastructures were essential to the growth of the empire, as they allowed the army to move quickly, but in addition to military purposes they were also used for political, administrative and commercial purposes. The Roman road system constituted the most efficient and enduring road system of antiquity , which made it possible to bring Roman civilization into contact with the most diverse peoples who populated the then known world. No other people in that historical era were able to match their ability to choose routes, construction techniques and organization of assistance to travelers.Directed by Gigi Oliviero.
