British School at Rome: 'What’s Greek about Roman architecture? Attaching labels to buildings in Imperial Rome'.22 May. The British School at Rome presents What’s Greek about Roman architecture? Attaching labels to buildings in Imperial Rome, a lecture by Dr Christopher Siwicki of the University of Exeter, on Wednesday 22 May from 18.00-19.30.
Part of the City of Rome lecture series, this talk examines how the ancients attached meaning to architecture; specifically, the extent to which audiences in the city of Rome associated particular forms, styles and materials with Hellenic culture.
Focusing on the reign of Hadrian, the lecture reassesses the labelling of architecture as ‘Greek’, ‘Roman’, ‘Hellenic’, and explores how statements about identity and culture were invested in buildings.
