HBO – Rome

rome

A couple of days ago I bought the HBO show Rome and as an addition the book about the show. Both are good sources for my upcoming Rome diorama project. There are a lot of great reference pictures of locations, props and costumes. I really like the show, even though it reminds me sometimes on an ancient version of that Dynasty Denver clan. On the DVDs are some good extras as well, but I haven’t seen them all yet. One very nice feature is the option, to view the episodes with comments on the historical background. A very usefull feature I think.
So little by little it becomes more clear how my project will look. It will be a street somewhere in the plebeians quaters. Have a look on the following picture of the fishmarket street of Rome. That will give you an idea of the direction how the diorama will look.
