Victoria Campbell Italian 4: Reading Rome Professor N. Canepa 11 July 2017 1. In general, what do you notice about the difference between the positioning and layout of the U.S. Capitol Buildings in Washington, D.C. (if you haven’t seen them, take a look online) and those in Rome? The Capitol buildings in D.C. are built entirely separately from the city and stand out much more than the government buildings in Rome. The Senate, Parliament, Palazzo Chigi, and Palazzo Colonna are much more integrated into the city than their counterparts in Washington. The architecture of the Roman buildings also matches that of the buildings around it, whereas the Capitol Buildings, and really all government buildings, in D.C. are built in a completely different style than American architecture in general, therefore making them stand out more. 2. What did you observe at the Senate? Did you see anyone go in and/or go out? Did you ask the carabinieri (military police stationed outside) any questions about Senate activities?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
