Communities across Italy invested considerable amounts of labour and financial capital into monumentalizing their urban spaces, a process which coincided with one of the most transformative periods in the region’s history. This lecture, delivered by Drew Davis, Crake Doctoral Fellow in Classics at Mount Allison University, will explore how this commitment to public construction in turn (re)created and constructed communities and forged local identities.
