Roma: Caput Mundi

Font size

 A   A+

One of the most challenging pedagogical aspects of art history is to recreate the original context of art and architecture while teaching in the classroom. Through a collaboration between Stephanie Leone, O'Neill Library, and Instructional Design and eTeaching Services, Roma: Caput Mundi was created to facilitate students' understanding of Rome as a physical entity. By navigating the map and interacting with the monuments, students take a virtual tour of Renaissance and Baroque Rome, which helps them to learn about the interrelationships between monuments and the urban environment.
