Ce que vous allez faire
We can read Rome in a number of ways: in its plan, in the buildings that make its streets and public spaces, in the skyline. During this walking tour you will learn how to “read” Rome, an ancient city, reborn in the fifteenth century and reshaped substantially in the following three centuries. You will discover how Renaissance and Baroque Rome’s urban form, art, and architecture projected the city’s image of itself to its citizens (URBI) and the world (ORBI). Popes, architects, scholars and sculptors invested in Rome a variety of narratives that strove to explain the city’s history, convince its citizens and visitors of its harmony, and exhort society at large to share in and shape its destiny. The city that resulted became a destination for pilgrims and Grand Tourists, and still is today. The tour is organized around three themes—the city and memory, the city as reliquary, and the city as theater. In uncovering some of the meaning of Rome, you will be equipped with the skills necessary to consider how our own cities and communities are, or could be, meaningful. Guests who book an instance two weeks before it starts get 20% off your default price of €55!
I am an italian practicing architect and a professor of design and history of Italian and Roman architecture as well. I have been teaching to architecture and art students of american universities programs in Rome for many years, both with in-studio courses but mostly through field trips in the most important italian cities. I also do private guided tours in Rome, focused on the history of the Reinassance and Baroque city. Nevertheless, I am also experienced in the ancient, modern and contemporary art and architecture aspects of Rome and the other major italian cities.
