The Grandeur of Rome has inspired writers, poets, and artists for centuries and one of the most noted, Lord Byron, declared: "Oh Rome! my country! city of the soul!" Interestingly, Rome could very much be considered an accidental city in origin and later architectural design and here we will explore some of the magnificent monuments of this Eternal City that continues to enchant us today.

Starting with the origin of Rome and its accidental birth as a city that would eventually become the center of two of the greatest empires in history - Pagan and Papal, we will discover the magnificent art and architecture that still today displays the Grandeur of Rome. Looking at the monuments that tell the story of this great city, often seen through the words of writers, we will encounter, amongst others, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and the Trevi Fountain.

Join Lauren Golden an Art Historian with a specialty in Roman Architecture as she takes us through some of the famous monuments of Rome that still today celebrate the grandeur of the history of the city. This is a wonderful conversation for those who have already been to Rome or for whom it might be on their bucket list. Join us as we explore the Eternal City - Rome.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Collectively, high-quality, varied programs.
One comment on this program specifically — there was a little bit of “reverb” in the audio that I haven’t heard in other talks. So although the presenter spoke clearly and has English as her primary language, the audio made it harder to catch some points.
