Lecture at Westchester Italian Cultural Center

On February 7 at 7pm, the Westchester Italian Cultural Center, One Generoso Pope Place, Tuckahoe will present a lecture entitled, “Beyond the Nile: Ancient Rome in the Land of the Pharaohs,” presented by Marisa Horowitz-Jaffe.

 

This lecture explores the artistic interplay and partisan cultural influence between these two great civilizations-Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt. Learn how mummification was kept in style once the Romans conquered the land, but put a classical spin on the method, or how the two sets of gods merged together to form a third set with characteristics familiar to both cultures.
