This course is a survey of the art and architecture of Rome from classical Antiquity to the Seventeenth century. It will teach the basic principles of art historical analysis through an active study of monuments, buildings, and artworks within their historical context. The power of images and the messages they convey will serve as a predominant guideline to reconstruct the history of the city. Issues such as politics, patronage, taste, gender, religion, and symbolic reading will be examined, as well as the ways these inter-relate to create identities.
