Yet another superb seminar by Livia Galante. She brought Ostia Antica to life because she wove together the archeology and the history contextualizing it. Her knowledge, enthusiasm, joy for the site, and passion about archeology and ancient Rome and its environs shone throughout. The visuals were terrific.
Livia Galante is a passionate and entertaining advocate and presenter on Ostia Antica, where she worked for many years. The presentation included the historic and environmental context for the site as well as in-depth information and anecdotes on the life in the port city and the customs of the Romans who lived and worked there. I have been to Ostia Antica and the site is well worth a visit when one is in Rome. It competes nicely with Pompeii. Livia added considerably to my knowledge of this unique place.

Outstanding presentation! Livia's enthusiastic delivery style as well as the excellent photos and reconstructed views of the site kept me riveted to my computer monitor throughout the presentation. We had visited Ostia and the on-site museum in 2009 but got only a fraction of the historical and archaeological information Livia gave us in just over one hour!
