Studying ancient - as well as medieval or modern - cities basically means telling local urban stories based on the reconstruction of changing landscapes through the centuries. Given the fragmentary nature of archaeological evidence, it is necessary to create new images that would give back the physical aspect of the urban landscape and that would bring it to life again. We are not just content with analyzing the many elements still visible of the ancient city. The connections between objects and architectures, visible and non visible buildings, which have been broken through time have to be rejoined, to acknowledge the elements that compose the urban landscape.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF ANCIENT ROME. ARCHAEOLOGY AND HISTORY OF THE PALATINE HILL
It was fun and challenging and Prof. Carafa is a very good teacher. I hope to find more history courses from Sapienza University
It would be better if the quiz had no latin terms, for the directions in the lecture aren't always clear and the quiz is absolutely mystifying in places.
Very interesting course and much necessary to continue an interest I have in learning about Ancient Rome. Thanks so much!
Complete, concise and precise. Very easy to understand and the professor is clear and suited for the position of teaching this course.
