Regias Revisited

This event is part of the New Work in the Arts & Humanities: Bodies of Knowledge series.

In the first half of the 20th century, excavations by G. Boni and F. Brown at the site of the Regia in Rome, between the Forum and the Palatine, revealed an archaeological sequence of extraordinary complexity and importance. Continuously built and rebuilt in lavish monumental style from the Archaic period to the Imperial one, this small building clearly had a great significance in the sacred and political topography of Rome. Since recent discoveries at Gabii have offered a unique opportunity to contextualize and better understand the remains in Rome, a new phase in the study of Regias has clearly begun. Thanks to a collaboration between the American Academy in Rome, the Università della Calabria and the University of Michigan, a full reconsideration of the site, based on the creation of a digital model and a stratigraphic archive, has been under way since 2014. The Regias Revisited conference will offer an opportunity to present the state of the work in Rome and at Gabii and will stimulate a broad debate on the crucial evidence these sites have produced.

Speakers include Paolo Brocato, Elizabetta Carnabuci, Marco Fabbri, Darby Scott, Nicola Terrenato and Mauro Torelli. Presentations will be given in Italian and English.

Organizers: Nicola Terrenato (terrenat@umich.edu) and Paolo Brocato (paolo.brocato@tin.it).
