The Office of Alumni Relations, in partnership with departments and units from across campus and dedicated volunteers, supports campus networks that help advance the mission and goals of Rice University. Campus networks work to connect alumni who share similar interests and passions.
Amici di via Gabina
Amici di via Gabina alumni and friends participated in the excavation of two suburban villas and a Late Antique granary/barn east from the center of Rome. The goal of this research, directed by Walter Widrig and Philip Oliver-Smith, was to shed light on the economic and social changes that took place from the Republic through the Imperial Era in the immediate area of the ancient Via Gabina. Rice was the sponsor of the project and with Walter Widrig holds the copyright to research materials.
The records from the excavations consisting of notebooks, catalogues, plans and drawings are all available to the public as archival materials of Rice University's Fondren Library. Copies of many of these items are also kept in the Library of the British School at Rome.
Alumni and friends who participated in this program will receive periodic email communications, be invited to attend an annual reunion gathering and participate in philanthropic endeavors to help support the Amici di via Gabina Traveling Fellowship.
For more information, please contact Natalye Appel, Via Gabina Class of ’79, ’80, ’82.
