    To be defined

The aim of the project is to investigate the categories of centre/periphery in the various meanings and functions that they have in Livy's historical work. From a literary point of view, this category will be analysed as an expressive tool, capable of highlighting the rhetorical and narrative strategies used by Livy. From a historiographic point of view, the categories of centre/periphery will be used to evaluate Livy's conception of the history of Rome and its Romanocentrism, in the light of Augustan tradition. From a historical point of view, the use of the centre/periphery categories will be investigateci in the context of the legai and power relations inside and outside the civitas.
