February 6 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm CET
Once in power Mussolini unearthed many monuments from ancient Rome. But how did he use his interest in archaeology and Rome’s past to glorify himself and underline his dominance? We’ll take a look at famous sites like the Ara Pacis, Mausoleum of Augustus, Via dei Fori Imperiali, and Via del Mare.
