I live in Claremont, California and am a professor of art history, so I like to go to museums and other cultural events. I am 60 years old and am in good physical shape and like to walk places rather than drive. I don't smoke and am a vegetarian. I am very quiet and will be spending quite a bit of time writing while I am in Rome. I have published several books on American art, and have also published essays on the Italian artist Mirella Bentivoglio. She is the person I will be visiting while in Rome.
