Antichità, Teatro, Magnificenza: Renaissance and Baroque Images of Rome Lecture

Free for Carlos Museum members; $5 for non-members
Jim Backstrom cell[masked] I will be here for the start of the lecture but will leave by 8 to head to the Goat Farm.

Another great lecture on a spectacular piece of art.

The largest and most complex print in the Carlos Museum exhibition is the “Ichnographia” or plan of the Campus Martius, published by Giovanni Battista Piranesi in 1762. Seemingly a dream world of imaginary buildings, many more than the Campus Martius of Augustus and Hadrian ever held, it also exhibits the most advanced archeological thinking of the time. It guided reconstructions of ancient Rome through the twentieth century and continues to stimulate creative architects. Joseph Connors, Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University, will explore this masterwork in a lecture titled Piranesi and the Campus Martius: Archeology and Imagination.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
