Imperial Villa of Casale är en mycket populär turistdestination, men det är så mycket mer och måste ses om du någonsin kommer till Sicilien. Det är en av de mest anmärkningsvärda tecknen på romerska närvaron på Sicilien. Det är en mycket välbevarad och vårdad romersk villa gjord av miljontals mosaikbitar som berättar historier från det stora romerska riket.

The rooms for festivities had toilets nearby and did not have a door. When the rich roman aristrocrats went to the toilet, they kept on the conversation with the people next door and woth those sitting next to them.


Rummen för festligheterna hade toaletter i närheten och hade inte dörrar.  När de rika romerska aristrocraterna gick på toaletten, fortsatte samtalen med folket intill och de som satt bredvid dem.

    These mosaics are real art. Countless hours must have been spent to make them. Most stunning is the fact that they show how similar everyday life was at that time to ours today. The bikini girls are marvelous. The erotic pieces always make me wonder why society has become more rigid since the Roman days, and not less. Today even lesbian erotic romance poems like those written more then 2000 years ago by Sappho ( https://noveltrove.com/Sappho/home ) wouldn’t be published in many countries, even though they are not explicit, but only describe the love two women have for each other.

      The more I explore the world outside general travel tracks, I get the same image that the world has become more rigid…and more every day.
      We speak about freedom and technology, but they were much more ahead those days in many ways.
