yoon.rome.cap You can only tell by looking up close, but this framed work isn't a painting. It's made to look like one but it's actually a mosaic made up of really teeny tiny tiles. It was found in Hadrian's villa and then reassembled at the Capitoline - so whoever was in charge of the project probably felt like they were working on the world's hardest puzzle. The view of the Roman Forum The bronze equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius The Capitoline Wolf, 13th c.

According to myth, Rome was founded by a pair of twins, Romulus and Remus, who were abandoned as babies and then discovered by a she-wolf who nursed them.

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
