Rome Burns The capital of a great empire, Rome was a center of art and culture that spanned hundreds of years. It was also the home city of a long series of emperors who ruled the Mediterranean. One of these was a man named Nero. A ruthlessly ambitious man, Nero came to the throne at age 16 with big plans. On July 18, 64 A.D., a fire broke out in Rome’s chariot stadium. History has blamed Nero for the fire, and it certainly gave him what he wanted—he took the opportunity to begin building a huge palace where part of the city had once stood. Fun Fact: The common phrase “Nero fiddled while Rome burned” or “fiddling while Rome burns” arose centuries after the fire but refers to it: It means to occupy oneself with unimportant matters during a crisis.

Corso monografico sulla vecchiaia | Il grecoantico: versioni, cultura, testi, letteratura Un cammino di lettura nei testi dell’antica Grecia Presentazione Il corso online La vecchiaia. Un cammino di lettura nei testi dell’antica Grecia propone di rileggere il fenomeno della vecchiaia, sulla base della lettura diretta di testi, che offriranno un panorama vasto ed eterogeneo, per verificare come – nel mondo greco antico – venisse elaborata la percezione di questo fenomeno. Il quadro che emergerà non ha certo la pretesa di essere esaustivo, ma solo di offrire un significativo confronto con le voci della poesia greca antica (nei suoi vari generi, dall’epica, alla lirica, al teatro) che possono esercitare una viva suggestione anche nel mondo attuale. Modalità di svolgimento Il corso si svolge online, in videoconferenza in diretta, con la possibilità di interagire con l’insegnante e gli altri presenti in sala conferenze. Nel corso degli incontri sarà possibile intervenire e chiedere chiarimenti, attraverso la chat interna della sala. Appuntamenti mercoledì 2 marzo 2016 – ore 21:00
