Renzo Carli, Rosa Maria Paniccia, Fiammetta Giovagnoli, Francesca Dolcetti, Rosario Gurrieri


The research, carried out within a project research of national interest (PRIN) directed by archaeologist Professor Clementina Panella, has the purpose to detect the local culture of inhabitants of the center and the outskirts of Rome, paying attention to the archaeological remains and their cultural contribution. Three components of local culture emerged in this research; all of them are reported to a cultural context that people feel as organized by the pursuit of power and the enhancement of the mass media as factors that give notoriety and popularity then power. One of the three cultural repertoires, characterized by young participants and residents in the outskirts of Rome, enhances the archaeological remains as components of a fun culture. The fun, in combination with culture, is experienced as an effective alternative to the power and the pursuit of power.
