Nova Roma is an international organization dedicated to the study and restoration of ancient Roman culture. From its founding until it ceased to be the center of Imperial authority Rome laid the foundation for our modern Western civilization. Founded 2,750 years after the Eternal City itself, Nova Roma seeks to bring back those golden times, not through the sword and the legions, however, but through the spread of knowledge and through our own virtuous example.
Republic and Corporation
The Nova Roman Republic is currently working as a free commonwealth of the community of Nova Roman citizens, and it is not equivalent to the Nova Roma Corporation (Nova Roma, Inc.). The citizens of Nova Roma own a corporation, Nova Roma, Inc., in order that we can do business with the organizations and authorities of the world outside Nova Roma. This corporation has been legally incorporated as a nonprofit educational and religious organization, Nova Roma, Inc., but it works independently from the Republic, even though the members of the corporation are largely the same as the citizens of the Republic. The corporation currently has some problems with its legal status within the State of Maine, USA, and our community is working on the solution and reformation of its structure, and hopefully Nova Roma will have a completely working corporation in the foreseeable future, which will be integrated into the frames of the Republic.
