About: Mantha Zarmakoupi

I’m a senior fellow at the Getty Research Institute working on a book project on the idea of landscape in Roman luxury villas. I’m also an associate of the École française d’Athènes, participating in a research team that examines the storage spaces in the late Hellenistic city of Delos. I earned my PhD from Oxford and have held research fellowships at the Freie Universität in Berlin, New York University, and the University of Cologne, and have taught at Bard College in Berlin and University College London. In 2010 I edited a volume on the Villa of the Papyri; my first monograph examined the architecture of Roman luxury villas around the Bay of Naples.

      is this the exhibition that just closed in Florence?
