Art Appreciation

3 pages
Details: Discuss the importance of Roman construction, using the Phase Resources, as well as your text, finding examples of Roman engineering. The Romans took the arch, a rarely employed technique, and used it in buildings and bridges all over the Empire. The Romans also invented concrete to build bigger projects faster and stronger. As a result, some of these structures still stand today. Choose three examples of Roman engineering (any combination of public works and/or private houses) and provide the following information:

Describe the item, including how it stands (arches, columns, vaults, free form, etc.).
What construction materials were used?
Where is the item – in modern Italy or outside of it?
What was its purpose?
Who primarily used it?
How is the public work/private house decorated? Do these decorations include words, or are they mostly pictorial?
