Art history professor Nicola Camerlenghi and his colleagues from other institutions photographed nearly 4,000 maps, prints and drawings from the last 3,000 years of Roman history at archaeologist Rodolfo Lanciani’s archive in Rome and created a website to house these archives, widening access to Rome’s historical objects for scholars and the general public. The Lanciani archive project was a part of the larger “Mapping Rome” project, a collaboration between faculty members across universities to map the development of Roman architecture over the last 3,000 years. He works on the Mapping Rome project with students at the Dartmouth College Rome Center and teaches Art History 1, “Bodies and Buildings: Introduction to the History of Art in the Ancient World and the Middle Ages,” as well as courses about medieval architecture and renaissance architecture.

Nestled in the stacks of Baker-Berry Library in the company of grand ideas and long, winding histories of Dartmouth College is a book that is in many ways unremarkable, save for the ways it illuminates the quotidian beauty of life as a student here. “Days at Dartmouth,” a collection of letters written by Americo Secondo DeMasi ’35, records his ramblings on the mundane — grades, upcoming exams, fencing practice. DeMasi passed away in the winter of his junior year on Feb. 25, 1934 when a furnace gas leak in Theta Chi filled the house with lethal carbon monoxide fumes, killing him and eight others in their sleep. After his death, DeMasi’s high school teacher Clara Gill compiled the letters he wrote to her, his parents and his girlfriend, Peggy, into the memorial housed on our library shelves. The result is an epistolary memoir that articulates the commonalities of the Dartmouth experience despite the differences that mark the span between our time and his.

Dartmouth soccer had its best weekend of the season as both the men and women defeated Cornell University at home. The men’s team clinched a share of the Ivy League title with a 1-0 win, while the women overcame frustrating results earlier in the season with a 1-0 win to get their first conference win to close out the season.
As the season comes to a close, each matchup becomes a do-or-die for the football team. Saturday’s matchup with Cornell University was no different — a loss would have ended any realistic hopes for a piece of the Ivy League crown. This week, the defense starred, holding together a 10-0 shutout at Memorial Field on Saturday.
