Layers of Rome:  A Study Day in Three Parts

Classical Rome and its Legacies:  This will cover the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Basilica of Maxentius - inspirational buildings, each with a different form and function.
The Flight of the Renaissance:  We shall then look at the Frescoes of Fillipo Lippi, Michelangelo's Pieta and Raphael's School of Athens, tracing the development of theology, philosophy and aesthetics.
Giants of the Baroque:  The final lecture is a study of the work of Caravaggio and Bernini and will explore the context and purpose of the flamboyant art and architecture of nineteenth century Rome.
