Forschungsprojekte:


Marble use in domestic settings

So-called 'Grotte di S. ErasmoThe project examines the use of marble as a decorative tool in domestic settings during the early imperial period. The project moves beyond questions of trade and use to consider how decorative stones interacted with other materials (wall painting, wood, etc.) within their decorative and architectural settings to create holistic decorative schemes, as well as examining how the marble on walls and in decorative pavements was an organising element in the visual language of space within the Roman house. Part of this research also will investigate how marble as a ‘luxury material’ measured against other aspects of domestic architecture/decoration and if the extravagance levelled against this decorative form by ancient authors stands up.
