Domus Libertas is a cultural project that aims to demonstrate that the art and culture of ancient Rome can exist in our time and in the daily life of our homes. Domus Libertas merges together different identities: Private house, bed & breakfast, cultural association.
WHAT IS A DOMUS?
The latin word “domus” means “house”, specifically the big and elegant houses of the elite of ancient Rome. The domus struck the imagination of contemporaries and of the visitors who, over the centuries, have explored their sprawling, exquisite, ruins. They were a symbol of luxury, pragmatism and art.
The building consists of three floors, one of which is a basement, and is surrounded by an outside garden.
The main entrance (called fauces) is on the ground floor. From there, the house opens on the atrium. In the floor centre there is a shallow pool called impluvium.
Crevalcore is at the crossroad of three important Roman provinces at the core of which are the cities of Bologna, Modena, and Ferrara.
