Ghosts of the Palazzo Pio
Ancient Romans firmly believed in the existence of ghosts. Do you? The Theater of Pompey is one of the most important and long-lived structures in ancient Rome. Built on its foundations is the Palazzo Pio, which now houses the UW Rome Center. The historic structure has seen its share of ghosts, among them some famous Romans who suffered violent and untimely deaths. We will explore their lives and connection with the Pio.
