Rome—Art and the City
The class will visit art, architecture, and urban neighborhoods in Rome, with excursions to ancient, medieval, and Renaissance sites in the surrounding countryside. Onsite lectures/discussions will develop skills of close, critical looking at the design and function of artworks and buildings. A final paper will discuss how the goals and values expressed in one ancient artwork (or building), and one medieval (or later) artwork (or building), compare and contrast with the student’s own worldview.
