Studying ancient - as well as medieval or modern - cities basically means telling local urban stories based on the reconstruction of changing landscapes through the centuries. Given the fragmentary nature of archaeological evidence, it is necessary to create new images that would give back the physical aspect of the urban landscape and that would bring it to life again. We are not just content with analyzing the many elements still visible of the ancient city. The connections between objects and architectures, visible and non visible buildings, which have been broken through time have to be rejoined, to acknowledge the elements that compose the urban landscape.

Wonderful Professor, it was really easy to understand the context of this course due to the well-organized information and slide-show. Highly recommended.
Very interesting course and much necessary to continue an interest I have in learning about Ancient Rome. Thanks so much!
The teacher is great! He shows us the actual ruins whenever possible, it is the next best thing to being there and seeing it ourselves.
The course is a good blend of entertaining and educational. You learn a tremendous amount about Rome and the architecture in that particular part of the city.
