CCR Walks: Façades - October 27, 2019

What is Rome’s colour? Burnt ochre or the light colours of the Baroque? As occurs during a wonderful choir performance when a few solo voices suddenly stand out, the city’s landscape is the result of more than the sum of its parts. How does one go about curating its unique cityscape?

Please join us as we take a look at Rome’s buildings and learn about their façades and the techniques and building materials used to create them. We will also explore the issues facing the owners, legislators, and conservators entrusted with protecting this architectural and cultural legacy.

When: Sunday, October 27, 2019
Time: 10 a.m.
Meeting Place: Piazza Venezia area; exact location will be provided to registered attendees.
Cost: €10 for members and €15 for non-members.
RSVP: ATTN Joe by Wed., Oct. 23rd. You are financially responsible for your reservation.
