As an editor of Archaeology, I frequently draw upon information I learned at the Centro about the archaeology, geography, and history of Roman Italy that helps me bring ancient history to vivid life for readers.
Which site, museum, or artwork sticks with you?
I still remember being awestruck in the Forum of Julius Caesar and the Forum of Augustus. We were standing far below the modern street level, and it was easy to feel transported to ancient Rome and experience the Roman Empire’s birth. I was truly impressed by the scale of the architecture, which would have been even more impressive when it all still stood.
What’s your favorite memory from your semester?
I look back especially fondly on memories of our home on the Janiculum. Between classes in the afternoon, I frequently enjoyed getting pastries or a gelato across the street from the Centro and walking in the park or to the Acqua Paola, which has one of the best views of Rome.
