Roman toga was the formal Roman citizen clothing that made him stand out among foreigners and slaves. Symbolism and representation of the Roman were associated with clothing. In this way, their strength, seriousness, significance and attachment to reason of state were shown. Interestingly, this outfit was not very practical.
In summer, on warm days, the toga was unusually warm, while in winter the body froze. In addition, the toga was bothersome due to the complicated style of dress and it was difficult to keep it clean.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
