His talk, titled ‘“Misteriose Erudition Antiche”: Material Continuum between Past and Present in the Villa Borghese’, centred on the restoration, rewriting and display of ancient sculptural fragments in the villa and notions of the villa as site of temporal continuum as described in Jacopo Manilli’s 1650 guidebook to the site.
