REMEMBERING THE END OF ETERNITY: 16TH - 19TH CENTURY ARCHITECTURAL MEMENTOS OF ANCIENT, RUINED ROME

Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 5:30pm
LOCATION: Zoom Webinar

Ancient Rome is much in the news. Not for any sensational archaeological discovery, or novel historical insight, but in its very old, familiar role as metaphor, as cautionary tale. A question increasingly asked – Are we Rome? - was previously posed by 17th, 18th and 19th century French and English visitors to the city, their respective empires at one summit or another. What did they make of shattered Rome? Of the not quite quiescent remains? Can we understand something of the city’s meanings for them through their preferences with architectural knick-knacks?

Let’s find out. Join the ICAA and Lucia Howard for a free webinar on this very timely subject.
