Boris Izaguirre investigate tonight all the secrets of the Roman Hispania In this second installment of ‘ disassembling‘. To do this, travel in time and visit settings as representative and spectacular as Tarragona, Lugo or Mérida. There, we witness the impressive digital reconstructions of its theaters, circuses, roads and walls to discover how it all began, what the conquest of the Empire was like.
But, during the seven centuries that they populated these lands, the Romans not only built fortresses, roads, sewers, theaters and aqueducts. They also sat
the foundations of our culture.
‘Desmontando’ shows what construction methods devised by the Romans make it possible for great engineering works such as the
Aqueduct of Segovia Today, 2000 years later, it still stands. How did they overcome the difficulties so that the flow of water flowed despite the unevenness? How did they build it? These are some of the questions that are answered.
Accompanied by the journalist
José YélamoBoris discovers what the first Roman city founded outside of Rome was like: Italica, in Seville. There you discover where the citizens of the Empire lived: their domus and farms that used to serve as a retreat for distinguished Roman soldiers and politicians.
