Professor Anna Tuck-Scala is a faculty member of the Department of Art History and Studio Art at John Cabot University, and has taught courses in Rome since 1995. She holds degrees from Cornell University and The Pennsylvania State University. A specialist in Italian art of the seventeenth century, Tuck-Scala was invited last spring by the European Architectural History Network to write a review of the exhibition, “I Borghese e l’Antico”, at the Galleria Borghese in Rome. This landmark exhibition featured sixty renowned ancient works from the Louvre, which returned to the Villa Borghese for the first time ever since their purchase by Napoleon in 1807. The European Architectural History Network promotes the exchange of knowledge among scholars all over the world on the history of architecture in Europe.
