Problem-solving and improvisation were put to the test as students tried to use household materials (apart from Duck Tape) to create working models of their favorite Roman inventions for their final projects in Roman Technology, part of AUR’s Archaeology and Classics program.

This unique gallery, located in the heart of Rome near the Tiber River, exhibits the work of emerging Italian artists. A boring “white walls” environment? This gallery is filled with the spirit of art! The pieces on exhibit are created by artists using different techniques and media; shows include sculpture, photography, and many styles of painting. Another singularity is that the gallery cooperates with an antique store, “Antiquariato Valligiano” which exhibits rare and antique furniture mixed in with the works of art. This adds an atmosphere of comfort and increases a visitor’s immersion in the world of Art.
