Blicky is out of town this week on a research fellowship in Rome, so once again I'll have to generate his blog entries. I believe he is combining it with a multi-national lecture tour.
For anyone planning a trip to Rome the Ara Pacis Museum in its Richard Meyer edifice one of the most spectacular installations I've ever seen. You can see how incredible the building is on their Web site. The windows face the Tiber river on one site and Augustus' Mausoleum the other. It is just the perfect way to enjoy a work of art.
