Roman House – Villa
Mi Casa est su casa – My house is your house
The hospitality of the Romans, established for a long while by the famous proverb “Mi Casa est su casa”, meaning “my house be your house”, was really not even close as encompassing as you may have thought. Though the gates of the Mediterranean city villas usually were open wide, this was caused by the warm weather and unbearably hot summers. The truth is that the Romans took great care to let nobody take a look inside their houses easily. However, you will be able to, thanks to the arts and crafts kit Roman Villa.
