Italo-Roman neopaganism

Ceremony of the Roman revivalist group Nova Roma to Concordia at Aquincum (Budapest), Floralia 2008

Italo-Roman Neopaganism, known variously as Religio Romana (Roman religion) in Latin, the Roman Way to the Gods in Italian and Spanish (via romana agli dei and camino romano a los dioses, respectively), Cultus Deorum Romanorum (worship of the Roman gods), Italo-Roman Tradition or Romano-Italic Tradition, is a contemporary reconstructionist movement reviving traditional Roman and Italic religious cults consisting of loosely related organizations.

Adherents can be found across Latin Europe, mainly Italy, but also in the Americas, the latter exemplified by Nova Roma.[1]

As usually grouped in Italian literature, the Italian movements may not correspond precisely with the English-literature notion of reconstructionism, but to a more encompassing notion of "Roman Pagan tradition[alism]".[2] Loosely influenced by
