Katherine Wentworth Tinne: "The Waters of Rome: Aqueducts, Fountains, and the Birth of the Baroque City" 

When: Tue., Feb. 15, 6 p.m. 2011
While most Europeans bathed little if at all during the 16th and 17th centuries, the Romans were frequently fully immersed. At University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Tuesday, Feb. 15, urban designer and historian Katherine Wentworth Tinne discusses her new book The Waters of Rome: Aqueducts, Fountains, and the Birth of the Baroque City, a pioneering study of Renaissance-era Rome's water infrastructure, which bloomed and boomed thanks to the efforts of both religious and civil authorities when the city was in a state of decay. 6 p.m., free.
