This volume collects papers by well-known scholars from all over the world on different topics of various chronology, from Roman Archaic period to Late Antiquity, from Historiography and Methodology to Archeology and Epigraphy, Politics and Religion.

The miscellaneous volume in honor of prof. Guido Clemente does collect 35 papers by well-known scholars from all over the world, and by younger researchers who, recognizing the direct or indirect teaching of the professor Clemente, have agreed to contribute to a collection in his honor. Moreover the volume has prof. Clemente's scientific profile and his personal Bibliography. The papers range from ancient and late history to the history of historiography, but they are linked to a prevailing theme, which the title 'The Past as Present ' sums up. This is one of the main key of interpretation of the relationship between institutions and Roman society that Guido Clemente does use in his studies, being conscious that from the last centuries of the Roman Republic until Late Antiquity the sense of the past as present marked the rhythms of that ancient society, since this strong ideal was able to also provide the interpretation of the change.
