THE CITY OF ROME AND ITS ARCHITECTURE: FROM AENEAS TO ZAHA HADID
In this course we will have the absolute pleasure of studying the city of Rome through time and space. We will start with the city's mythical and legendary founding by Aeneas nearly three millennia ago and work our way through contemporary Rome. Focal points will include: the Augustan principate during the Roman Empire, the building and urban planning of the Baroque popes, Mussolini's "Third Rome," and the contemporary city of Renzo Piano and Zaha Hadid. It is important to note that this course aims to present a fuller and richer examination of the lived experience in the city of Rome through time. Recent archaeological work has shed tremendous light on the living and working conditions within city from antiquity to the present day.
