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!
I had told my husband about Livia, that the minute Italy opens, we're going to all the places she's told me about in lectures, and she didn't disappoint again this morning! He wandered into the room, listened to the whole talk, transfixed! She brings these ancient sites to life, her slides are so well organized and informative, her devotion and enthusiasm for her subjects is transporting and her tangents are delightful.
