Paolina Borghese’s (unairconditioned) feet

Set in the Mannerist splendour of Cardinal Scipione Borgheses villa on the Pincian Hill, today the Galleria Borghese is one of Romes most beautiful museums. Its owner spared no expense to create a suburban party palace that would set off his superlative collection of paintings, sculpture and antiquities.

One Short Week in Denver: An Undergraduate History Club Goes to the AHA Annual Meeting

By Blanca Drapeau There we were. A small group of Californian undergrads, winter layers piled over our business casual attire, perusing the AHA 2017 annual meeting program over coffee and pastries.

Another hidden gem Diocletian’s Stadium under Piazza Navona

You may or may not have learned that the Roman Baroque masterpiece now known as Piazza Navona started out as a stadium built by the Emperor Domitian (81-96 A.D.) in 86 A.D. to celebrate the Certamen Capitolino Iovi, a musical, theatrical and athletic performances dedicated to Jupiter. He modeled the new stadium and the accompanying odeon on the Greek model, but Domitian didnt simply use the terrai... Lue lisää

Palazzo Venezia: a hidden gem in plain sight

The only reason I even darkened the doorway of the 15th century Palazzo Venezia, most recognizable today from old newsreel footage of Benito Mussolini addressing the multitudes in the Piazza Venezia from the balcony, was to see if the Duces last secret bunker rediscovered in 2011 after decades hidden under the floor of a junk room, was open to visitors. It was not. I turned to leave. Then I happen... Lue lisää

The aquila has landed!

The flight was terrible, as they always are these days, and departure was delayed over an hour, but it was all forgotten upon landing. (Okay, upon getting through security.) Sun and blue sky and Father Tiber welcomed me in their warm embrace and I hit the streets as soon as I dropped my crap off at the hotel. A quick jaunt to St. Peters where I hoped to catch the Pope canonizing some saintly types... Lue lisää

Colosseum’s vertiginous cheap seats to reopen

The latest phase of the Colosseum restoration has made possible the reopening of what were once its cheapest seats and are now a vertigo-inducing thrill ride with the best view in town, 40 years after they were last open to the public. Its structural issues and propensity to drop heavy stone blocks at unpredictable times for decades severely restricted what areas were accessible to the public. Aft... Lue lisää

But what about a trove of sources that have the potential to alter the direction of a project entirely? Even before I applied t... Lue lisää
