How did the classical civilization of Rome develop?

There is not such a thing as Roman classical civilisation. There is not such a thing as classical civilisation either. The term is classical, period/age/era or classical antiquity. It refers to the cultural period in the history of the Mediterranean Sea when the culture of the Greeks and Romans became intermingled through the cultural influence of the former on the latter. It is therefore related to the Greco-Roman world. The Greeks also had a strong influence of the eastern part of the Roman Empire (the eastern Mediterranean) because they had ruled this area for several centuries before the arrival of the Romans. Greek was the lingual franca in this area. The education of Roman elite men was both in Latin and Greek and these men were fluent in Greek.
