Rome is a city that belongs to the entire world due to its unparalleled richness, preserved in layers throughout, and under, the city. It is the ideal urban center in which to examine the impact that the material cultural has had and continues to exert on Romans and international visitors to the city. How do we convey these values to an ever more connected world, in real time online as well as on site?
