Join us on Thursday, 11 March for the new cycle of “Dialoghi in Curia” (“Conversations in the Curia”), a series of book presentations available to the public through the end of May.

The books in this year’s series range in their content from archaeology, to the female figures that made imperial history, to the new frontiers of digital communication in the post-pandemic world.

Our series begins with “Dal mostro al principe. Alle origini di Roma” (“From monster to prince. At the origins of Rome”), the new book by Andrea Carandini and Paolo Carafa, published by Laterza. The volume investigates the mythic and archaeo-historical essence of Mount Germalus on the Palatine with new, systematic research: from the discovery of the altar and innermost chamber of a temple to Pales to new studies on the temples of other female cults and on the huts that first housed local chieftains and then the first king; from the re-examination of the palace of Augustus to the reconsideration of the various foundations of the Tiber’s inhabited area.

Our speakers for this presentation are Emanuele Papi, director of the Italian School of Archaeology at Athens, and Paola Quaranta, PArCo archaeological official and supervisor of the Palatine area.

The event will be broadcast online from the Curia Julia in the Roman Forum on the PArCo Facebook page.
