The project is made possible by the generous support of the Steinmetz Family of Los Angeles, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, and the Vincenzo Romagnoli Group. Quintus Horatius Flaccus ("Horace" in English) lived from 65 to 8 B.C. and was Rome's leading poet of lyric and satiric poetry in the Golden Age of Roman literature under the Emperor Augustus. His villa near Licenza, Italy (35 miles northeast of Rome) is the only house of a Roman writer of the Augustan Age that can be identified and visited today. As such, it is a precious part of our heritage and repays study--especially since Horace wrote so much about the place he called "the fulfillment of all my hopes and prayers." "

The core of the site is a searchable database of over 500 images focusing on various aspects of the design and execution of the column's sculptural decoration.

The aim of this site is to make these images available to the widest possible public, in a form that can contribute both to ongoing study by specialists and to enjoyment and appreciation of the monument by the general public."

[Red Arrow Image] The Italian History Index is sending a logo to the best Italian History Sites: [Best Italian History Site recommended by the VL Italian History Index]
This page consists of a list of web-sites which we think are the best Italian History sites on the Internet made in Italy. Non-Italian sites on the history of Italy are part of The Italian History Index but are not yet part of this selection. To be elegible for this list of scientifically-evaluated sites, all web-sites should also be accessible totally and freely to a world-wide public without any kind of restriction. The Best of the Italian History Index has an Editorial Board.
