About this book

This volume collects a series of papers delivered at the International Conference “Portraying Cicero/Ritratti di Cicerone”, held in Rome on May 15th -17th 2019. The papers deal with the reception of Cicero and offer different perspectives on the reconstruction and re-use of the image of Cicero throughout the centuries, from the early imperial age to modern times. Some of them are concerned with Cicero’s self-portrait and analyse how Cicero’ exemplary status was reworked in different cultures and ages. Others take a fresh approach to the impact exercised by Cicero on politics and society in the last centuries of modern era. We do hope that this volume will encourage scholars and readers to further delve into the fascinating world of the reception of one of the most discussed and loved men in antiquity.
