Itinerary B

[4]The vitality of the ancient Romans

Various literary testimonies tell us how the baths of the Urbe were anything but silent.
Bathers would noisily discuss current affairs and politics, players would count at the top of their lungs how many passes they could make with a ball, while beauticians would talk loudly with the women undergoing their treatments.
All this noise created a great hullabaloo, in which the ancient Romans, however, still managed to relax.
