This subject explores the cultural life of Rome in the seventeenth century, concentrating on the extraordinary flowering of artistic enterprises in the city and the major urbanistic projects of various popes. it studies the art and life of Rome against the background of the counter-reformation, the religious wars in Europe and the scientific revolution. While teaching students the skills to critically analyse and interpret images, and the research skills required to conduct independent research, the course remains focused on the appearance and social life of the city and examines how power manifested itself in urbanistic and architectural projects there.
