Within the Shakespearean corpus the image of ancient Rome works as the emblem of the classical past, a goldmine of foundational myths and the model of an authoritative culture early modern England felt compelled to look to. To Ancient Rome Shakespeare devoted five plays (Titus Andronicus, Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, Antony and Cleopatra, Cymbeline) and a narrative poem (The Rape of Lucrece): the themes and motifs of these works will be examined in depth in the classroom while the city of Rome, with its theaters (and especially the Globe’s replica in the park of Villa Borghese), archaeological sites and artistic resources will offer participants a unique opportunity to complement their study outdoor.
