Gangsterism in Rome

Gangsterism in Rome

(p.36) 3 Gangsterism in Rome
Rome Season Two

Arthur J. Pomeroy

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “Gangsterism in Rome,” by Arthur J. Pomeroy, examines the depiction of organized violence, crime, and gangs in the second season of the series Rome. This chapter’s analysis sets up a parallelism of criminality between two sides of society, between the upper and lower strata of society. This chapter demonstrates that while Antony and Octavian use the triumvirate to cover their abuses of power, Vorenus and Pullo try to make the gangs of the Aventine Collegium more legitimate.

Keywords:   Rome, gangsterism, violence, crime, Aventine Collegium
