Also, if Madison have not taken the notes that he did, then the Constitution might not have the ideas that the delegates agreed upon in the past. Next, he was the one who composed the very first drafts of the constitution, which helped the delegates know what they needed to fix and add on to. Lastly, he helped ratify the constitution. If it were not for the countless essays that he wrote, the constitution might have never been signed in the first place. Ultimately, I gave James Madison an “A” because I believe that he played a very big role in the creation of the constitution that we know of
The Roman Empire is referenced as, as the 1954 guide, a time of engineering, but also as a time that contributed highly to “modern political administration and law”. The “Glory of the Renaissance” is characterized as a time with arts “still unsurpassed” and exploration that led to the discovery of the New World (PGI 1964 25).

Giovanni Batista Piranesi was an eighteenth 's century Italian artist, architect, and archeologist whose remarkable talent, imagination and the uncanny accuracy in depicting the monuments of Rome had a profound influence on stimulating the imagination of many poets, artists, and writers of the time. In his work, Piranesi aimed to capture the ancient Rome while superimposing it on the contemporary city in a way that would transform the existing environments into grandiose, magnificent, and, somewhat dramatized depictions. In one of his most beautiful etchings, the "Forma Ideale del Campidoglio Antico," Piranesi successfully highlights the monumentality of the ancient past by integrating the classical elements into the contemporary reality (Stock
Are you visiting Rome? The city has many attractions. Vatican city, Colosseum, Stadio Olimpico, crusty thin pizza and many others. My personal favorite, and maybe the biggest attraction of them all is the Pantheon. So you 're just wandering through the twisty mediaeval streets of the centro storico (historical center), and as if the cobblestones and ivy weren 't enough, you turn the corner, and out of nowhere is this massive temple.
Artists like Bernini and Rembrandt are prime examples of how patronage affects their art, whilst still being part of the baroque era. These Baroque elements are so engrained in the system of patronage that even outside the Baroque era when an artist is commissioned through the patronage system their work can’t help but take on these and other baroque elements. Starting with an artist like Bernini who under the patronage system created some of the most revered sculptures of the baroque era. Born in Naples, Italy Bernini got a lot of his patronage form Italians. One of his more notable patronages includes the sculpture of “The Ecstasy of St. Teresa” which was commission by the Cornaro family for their personal chapel.
Long before I came to Florence, Italy, I used to dream about visiting Milan. My reasons for wanting to come to Italy were not simply about Milan being one of the major fashion cities of the world; I wanted to study in Italy because it is the birthplace of so many high-end fashion brands. At the time, however, I knew very little about Florence. But after I arrived in Florence, I realized that I still had much to learn, and felt inspired at being confronted with so many things that I had not imagined or seen before. First, allow me to describe how the Florentine skyline, gelato, and architecture inspired me.
Italy arranges traveler quantity for "soaked" Cinque Terre coastline The national park powers are considering an application which would demonstrate guests which towns were excessively swarmed – with a "movement light" framework showing red for stuffed, yellow for occupied and green for generally void They are prestigious for their sensational bluffs, unpredictably terraced vineyards, pleasant harbors and winding beach front trails.

Rome was a very unique place. It began long ago as a city in the center of Italy, on the Italian Peninsula. Soon enough, Rome grew into a kingdom.

The article that I chose to read is called “Absolutism and the Rhetoric of Topography: Streets in the Rome of Sixtus V” by Charles Burroughs. This article is about Rome under Pope Sixtus V. While Burroughs is also successful at presenting the broad idea of what he wants to portray, yet also uses specific examples and narrows his focus in on these. Burroughs begins this article by stating that “few projects of urban remodeling are as celebrated as that of Pope Sixtus V for Rome” (189).

In 1492, the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sailed for Spain and discovered the New World horizon. This caused the worlds to come together economically and culturally all to the greed of wealth. Unfortunately, one negative consequence is the disease and the devastation of indigenous and African demographics. Meanwhile, Europe’s economy and population flourished because of the Columbian Exchange.
Virgil uses Aeneas’s choice of duty over Dido to show that in relationships, work comes first despite the emotions present. Early in the book, it is established how important Aeneas’s duty is to him. Aeneas is meant to be fulfilling his fate by founding a city in Italy. It is obvious that before he met Dido he was very focused on his responsibilities. Virgil makes a point of this by writing: “duty-bound … took the course heaven gave him and went back to the fleet”.
America does, as well, although the culture has many differences, but that goes with the time period. What matters most when trying to build a society are the decisions made by each population over time that benefit or hinder the country. For example, the government of Rome developed The Twelve Tables around 450 BCE, and the Corpus Juris Civilis around 525 AD. These documents were a part of the Roman legal system that described laws
