Romulus and Remus

The boy’s AP Art History class begins a unit on Rome next week.  One of the pieces they will be learning about is this one featuring Remus and Romulus which is found at the Pallazio Del Conservatori.  There are several versions of the legend of these twin brothers.  If you want to learn about them, here are a few sites we found that might satisfy your interest.
And if you want to see this statue for yourself but won’t be in Rome, Italy, no worries – you can see a bronze replica that was presented to Rome, Georgia, in 1929.
