This Fall, MGR will explore how rivalries fuels the Eternal City with a series of weblectures dedicated to Rome's most notorious adversaries, from Pomepy and Caesar to Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida. While these famous feuds were fodder for diarists, historians, and scandal mongers, they also shaped the political, artistic, and social landscape of the city. Join us for some great stories, fascinating characters, infamous put downs and terrific art every other Monday starting on September 11.

MGR founder Liz Lev will kick off the series with the Clash of the Titans, how the rivalry between Michelangelo and Raphael launched the Renaissance in Rome into superstardom. Don't miss this chance to virtually visit the Raphael rooms and the Sistine chapel from the uncrowded quiet of home and see these famous works through the excited lens of the knock-down, drag-out battle between two geniuses for supremacy in art - you'll decide the winner!
