Acerca del Curso

Studying ancient - as well as medieval or modern - cities basically means telling local urban stories based on the reconstruction of changing landscapes through the centuries. Given the fragmentary nature of archaeological evidence, it is necessary to create new images that would give back the physical aspect of the urban landscape and that would bring it to life again. We are not just content with analyzing the many elements still visible of the ancient city. The connections between objects and architectures, visible and non visible buildings, which have been broken through time have to be rejoined, to acknowledge the elements that compose the urban landscape. Landscape and its content are a very relevant and still vital part of any national cultural heritage. The course will introduce students to the way we have been reflecting on over the last twenty years and still are engaged with the study of the past of our cities, beginning from the most complex case in the ancient Mediterranean World: the core of Italy and of Roman Empire. On the other hand, knowledge means also preservation and defense of material remains and cultural memory. “The Changing Landscape of Ancient Rome. Archeology and History of the Palatine Hill” presents to a large public the topographical lay-out of the most relevant part of the city (according the Greek and Roman Historians Rome was founded on the Palatine). Research developed on the Palatine since the end of last century by the team of Sapienza Classical Archaeologists opened a new phase in the urban archaeological investigation and in the scientific debate about the relation between archaeological features and literary tradition as well as the “correct use“ of both kind of evidence, key issues of wide archaeological and historical significance....

I was excited to take this course, eager to hear Prof. Carafa. However all of his knowledge, all of the work that went into creating this valuable course, was degraded by the very bad English text and subtitles. So many mistakes! 100+. Some are significant, some are comical, none are excusable. So five stars for the professor, no star for the transcriber.

I've taken several course dealing with this subject and definitely found this class informative, but the professor was difficult for me to understand and particularly towards the end I questioned whether the quizzes had any relationship to the lectures. Perhaps I didn't hear correctly. Speaking of hearing, the translations were not the best either.

Great content, especially for serious archaeologists. While understandable for the most part, the presentations in second-language English at times lagged.

Found a lot of translating errors which made the course a little frustrating. Overall learnt a lot about Ancient Rome.

Lost interest, couldn't finish. Probably could have read a book on the subject and saved myself the time.

some of the quiz questions have nothing to do with the course! I know I was about archaeology but it seemed more conducive to Roman architecture than anything else. This course was misleading.

Maps are terrible. Close Captioning non existent at times. English pronounciation is bad. The subject is interesting though

No transcripts, difficult to understand the audio.

I thought this was a course about history turns out its a course about AutoCAD and needs software I can't install.

First quiz is on content not in the video, the video was about installing AutoCAD.
