2. Purpose of entertainment places

a. Amphitheatrum: For gladiatorial ludi, typically held by the aediles as part of a state or plebeian ludi. Private citizens who are members of the First Class, or senators, may petition the senate to stage a gladiatorial munera, by contacting the consul(s) or the princeps senatus so the matter can be debated and voted upon and consent granted. Sufficient time should be factored in as the senatorial calendar may be restricted by religious days or existing agenda commitments. Any private citizen wishing to stage a gladiatorial munera should present the senate with the rationale for doing so. Typically these munera were funereal games, but other occasions will be considered by the senate as justification for the munera. No private citizen sponsored gladiatorial munera shall be held between November 1st to December 31st of each year.
b. Circensis: For chariot/horse racing, and atheletic based ludi / munera. Private citizens who are members of the First Class, or senators, may petition the senate to stage such a munera, by contacting the consul(s) or the princeps senatus so the matter can be debated and voted upon and consent granted. Sufficient time should be factored in as the senatorial calendar may be restricted by religious days or existing agenda commitments. Any private citizen wishing to stage such a munera should present the senate with the rationale for doing so. No private citizen sponsored munera shall be held between November 1st to December 31st of each year.
c. Theatrum: For the presentation by the aediles, or private citizens, of drama or comedies of Ancient Rome, or Ancient Greece, or compositions by Nova Roman citizens based on the themes and principles of the ancient modes and models of dramatic and comedic plays. Themes of Nova Roman politics maybe included in the presentation, as long as the content does not represent an imminent and clear danger to Nova Roma. Prudent citizens wishing to present such an event should refer the proposed content of such presentations that they feel may be construed as representing such a danger to the chair of the Senate Communication Committee for review and debate, and possible referral to the Senate for a decision on the matter. No private citizen sponsored presentation shall be held between November 1st to December 31st of each year.

Assidui citizens of different classes may co-operate in staging such a munera or dramatic presentation, but such must be sponsored by a citizen of the First Class, who must be fully involved in the activity before and during the event. Only citizens of the First to Fifth Class inclusive may participate in the the planning and delivery of such events. A list of all citizens participating in the planning and proposed delivery of such an event must be disclosed by the event sponsor in his/her submission to the Senate through a consul(s), and no other citizen(s) must be added to the group of citizens presenting such after the consent of the Senate has been granted. Failure to abide by this will result in the ITTF preventing the event from being held, or cancelling it during the course of an event, if it becomes clear this prohibition has been violated.

The purpose of these communities is to discuss the furtherance of the functions (http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Functions_(Nova_Roma) ) and missions http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Missions_(Nova_Roma) of Nova Roma, as well as any topics of specific interest to the specific community class. Internal Nova Roman politics can be discussed freely in these communities, as can matters of the Religio Romana, and any other matters that the magistrates and/or officials assigned to the community as list owners and/or moderators feel appropriate topics in accord with the Primary Function of Nova Roma. Discussion of macronational politics/affairs is forbidden. The magistrate responsible for his/her place shall encourage discussions, local celebrations, and seek innovative ways to further a positive social atmosphere, and shall be fully involved in all those activities and discussions. Holding a munera of a gladiatorial or circensis themed event are not appropriate events for urbs community places, but short drama productions can be encouraged and supported. A good guide is what would have been appropriate and practical for an ancient Roman residential area is appropriate for an urbs community place, if it is possible to translate such directly, or adapt such, into an electronic environment. Creativity in such translation/adaptation is to be encouraged by the magistrates responsible for an urbs community place. The development of one or more collegia compitalicia, via the formation of a Senate approved private collegium, within an urbs community place is to be encouraged but must have as its primary purpose devotion to a collegium pontificum approved religious cult directly pertaining to the Religio Romana. Purposes, such as social and/or internal Nova Roman political ones, are also appropriate secondary purposes.
