Product Description

The successful and thought-provoking Italy in the White House: A Conversation on Historical Perspectives, hosted by the White House Historical Association’s David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History in March 2016, the first in a series of planned symposia to highlight the White House in an international context, created a solid framework for subsequent events with other countries in the future. Throughout the day, scholars Barbara Faedda, Campbell Grey, Meredith Levin, Mortimer Sellers, and Richard Guy Wilson shared historic insights and revealed the profound connections between Italy and the United States as viewed through White House history. Included in the printed symposium proceedings are their papers, which illustrate how the philosophical and architectural ideals that date back to the Roman Republic are reflected in the White House we know today.
