Program Description:


Join us for a deep dive into the Eternal City, mapping Rome’s cultural footprint from antiquity to today. We will explore the challenges, innovations, accomplishments and defeats of civilizations whose common experience is the city they inhabited. Rome, one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe, is a warehouse of the human experience. Through our 10-day journey we will encounter the epochs that mark its history and map the shared experiences that connect us with Rome.
