The Ludi Romani were games (ludi) held annually by the ancient Romans in honor of the greatest god Iupiter.
Historically these were the oldest, largest and most popular games, first held in 509 BCE. Historically circus games clearly dominated the event, but athletic competitions such as running, wrestling along with theatre and music also were present throughout the games.
The modern Roman Republic has reinstituted these games in the form of a festival celebrated for a week both online and offline. Join us to celebrate the past, present, and tomorrow!
