Abstract

The aim of this essay was to make a comparative study of political communication between the Late Roman Republic and the contemporary age, in order to demonstrate how much partecipatory was politics in the ancient Rome. On the one hand, the study examined a vademecum about elections, entitled Commentariolum Petitionis. On the other hand, by analysing the various devices given to Cicero, the candidate for the consulship of 63 B.C., the same categories were found in current studies about spin doctoring. Research strenghtened the importance of political partecipation in Rome, as the result of the necessity to gain popularity and reach the full consensus of the whole electorate.
