Cross internacional de Italica

Italica is one of the most important Roman sites in Spain. It has its origin with Publius Cornelius Scipio by the year 206 BC, after the triumph of Rome over Carthage in Ilipa. It is the birthplace of important personalities, specifically in Italica were born the emperors Trajan and Adriano and many senators of the time. It was then a city of proven importance, especially since the time of Augustus. Hence the importance of its theater and amphitheater, the third largest in the empire after the Roman Colosseum and the anti-theater of Padua. It had luxury mansions whose remains are preserved. Its decadence arrived with the dynasty of the Antoninos and it was accentuated in times of Severe Septimio, diminishing the size of the city. It is a place with a lot of history around which the Cross Italica 2018 revolves.

It is expected in total more than 3,000 participants who will further enhance a field through as the Cross of Itálica that has more than 37 years of history.
