Rome Then and Now: The Albert Farwell Collection

The Eternal City of Rome was a “must see” on the European Grand Tour. Albert Farwell, son-in-law of Athenaeum founder, Horace Fairbanks, traveled extensively, purchasing photographs throughout his journeys at the turn of the 20th century. Living in Rome during a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute, Denise Scavitto recreated some of the photographs in the Athenaeum’s Farwell collection. She will share the history of the Farwell Collection and some of the photos of Roman landmarks, then and now.
