Power and space in archaic Rome - The relationship between urban and political power in archaic Rome shows that the stratification of three spatial devices for control prepared the way for the passage from the monarchy to the republic, from the virtue of blood to the impersonal nomos of the land. The study starts at the time of the proto-urban settlement by sifting elements relating to practices of spatial control connected with the development of political Roman institutions from accounts of traditions. Whether the archetypal past is always the present scene of decisions and gestures to which modern people return, or whether it is rather a theoretical place visited by researchers to experience sharper visions, in both cases the findings brought to light by the survey provide useful keys for interpreting spatial planning without the embarrassment of its weak scientific basis and is brought back to the practice of control exercised with lines and borders along conflicts between social groups.
