On Thursday, 21 November, in celebration of World Philosophy Day, the Parco archeologico del Colosseo is holding a special conference from 11:00 to 13:00 in the beautiful location of the monumental Curia Iulia in the Roman Forum. The speakers, Daniela Angelucci — professor of aesthetics — and Dario Gentili — professor of moral philosophy —, both from the Roma Tre University Department of Philosophy, Communication and Performing Arts, will address the topic “Philosophy in Italy”, with the goal of involving an ever-expanding public in the philosophical debate.
The conference, promoted by the Parco archeologico del Colosseo and made possible with the collaboration of Electa and the support of the Roma Tre University Department of Philosophy, Communication and Performing Arts in media partnership with the DIRE national news agency, upholds the Curia Iulia’s historic vocation. As the location of the ancient Roman senate, the Curia Iulia was and continues to be a space designated for public gatherings and cultural debates, open to the community at large. This space has been selected for its ability to reinforce the bond between the city and its ancient heart, the central archaeological area, and to bring Rome’s cultural identity in contact with the very latest philosophical research.
Entry to the Parco archeologico del Colosseo is free on this day, as part of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism’s #iovadoalmuseo project.
Guests are kindly reminded that the temporary exhibition “Carthago. The immortal myth” and all SUPER sites are closed to the public on free entry days.
