Hey, I'm Bernard!
Rome, Lazio, Italy · Member since October 2011

When I came to live at the Roman Villa and began to write "Carmen Via", a book about landscapes of memory and imagination, I began to research many tales about the Roman Villa and its nearby territory: about Greek heroes and myth, about Etruscan magic, about Roman imperial power, about the dawn of Christianity. But I also discovered many new things about my own family, which seemed just as extraordinary: about the Silj family's contradictory role in terminating the Roman Church's claims to the old Roman Empire; about the wild artists of the Convivium group; about the bitter templar-Church dispute.
