Roma non basta una vita. Rome – a lifetime is not enough. Around every corner of Rome is a great artwork, a funny story, or a mystery. Through this presentation, we visit some of the famous, not so famous, and downright obscure byways of Rome, ending in one of the most inspiring cemeteries in the world. There will be plenty of time for questions and comments!

Roger has given many presentations for OLLI-UO on art and movies, including an examination of Jan Vermeer and Han van Meegeren as “the Master” and “the Forger.”
