Analysis of two works of R. Warner, Il giovane Cesare and Cesare Imperiale, published in 1958 and recently translated into Italian: these books are part of a large tradition of historical novels of the twentieth-century wich deals with the biography of Giulio Cesare. Warner, indeed, who is a philologist and an expert of classical antiquietes, retraces the life of Cesar from his youth to the Ides of March. The A. starts with some considerations about the connection between classical antiquietes and media, fiction, cinema and comics and how they rework myths, characters and historical events of Rome in a up-to-date way, opening new and original courses of research.
