Images of Rome: The Grand Tour and After
Although we may visit Rome to make contact with the remains of ancient Roman civilisation, the Rome that we see is very much a product of artistic and aesthetic ideas of the last 200 years. The course will explore how the remains of the ancient and medieval past have been modified, adapted and restored, to create the Rome we see today.
