I situate my work at the intersection of the analysis of cities and images in antiquity. This includes studies on the processes of urbanisation and urban transformations as well as on urban agency and urban perception. With regard to images, I am interested in their semantic and aesthetic qualities which emerge in interrelation with their context. My most recent ERC Project ‘Decorative Principles in Late Republican and Early Imperial Italy’relates these two research approaches. The focus is on urban atmospheres and emotional spaces within the city. The geographical centre of my research is Greece and Italy, with a special focus on Pompeii.

Keywords: Urban transformation, urban agency, urban perception, ornamental and pictorial concepts, decorative principles, late republican and early imperial Italy
