Between 900 and 50 BCE, central Italians went from living in straw huts to creating some of the largest buildings ever made. The course will follow the development of this unique architectural tradition discussing materials such as rock-cut Etruscan tombs, massive temples decorated with complex clay sculptures, miles-long stone fortification walls and theaters that could seat over ten thousand spectators. In the process, the Romans discovered processes like fired bricks and poured concrete, which forever changed the face of architecture. Come and discover how the technology behind the construction of the Coliseum was developed.
