    Conjure up new stories and characters inspired by the myths of Ancient Rome. 

    With more than 3,000 years of history, Rome is steeped in legend. Through expert-led classes, dive into the basics of storytelling amid the backdrop of Roman mythology. Analyze stories that have endured for millennia. Develop the tools and techniques to breathe life into your tales! 

    Meet storytellers and visual artists. Investigate artistic and literary works rooted in myths and the responses to those myths over time. Engage in virtual reality experiences to see the city’s palaces, temples, and monuments just as the ancient Romans saw them. In the end, create your own storytelling project as a spoken performance, script, creative essay, comic, short film, or audio story. 

    Explore Rome’s cobbled streets and alleys—from the Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain and Vatican—and meet local teens, too. On excursions, travel to the Campania region, stopping by Pompeii, Naples, and Capri, to learn about the first Greek colonies (and myths) of southern Italy. During your adventure, you’ll make connections between classical heroes, gods, and our contemporary world, experiencing an epic narrative of your own.
