Thermopolium is one ofe the projects created and developed by the cultural association è Mos Maiorvm within its activity of experimental archaelogy and historical recontruction of the ancient Rome and pre-roman Italy.
The thermopolium - also known as popina - is the same of our taverrns, where warm ready food was served, stored into big terracotta jars embedded in the shop's counter; this food was consumed mainly by passers-by and that's why a thermopolium is refered to by many as the the fast food shop of antiquity!.

Theropolium project and Culrural Association 'Mos Maiorvm' are totally non-profit making bodies which only pourpose is spreading culture and fun!
