About this teacher

I hold a degree and a postgraduate degree
(Specializzazione) in Classical Archaeology from the Università di Roma “La
Sapienza”, and an MA in Archaeology and PhD in History of Art from the
University of Manchester, where I have been a student of Prof. Roger Ling and
Dr. Tom Rasmussen.


My main research interests are Greek and Roman art and
architecture and the history of archaeological studies. I have published
articles and reviews on these topics, and a monograph about one of the most
imposing late-antique houses at Ostia: the Domus del Ninfeo. My English
translation of a book on Herculaneum has been recently published.


I have been teaching for years at the University of
Manchester (undergraduates, postgraduates and at the former Centre for
Continuing Education) and I am currently affiliated to the University of Bonn.

Alessandra has performed for years as a soloist to critical and public acclaim in Italy, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Iceland, Germany, Poland and the US. Since 2006 she has been one of Vatican Radio’s recording artists, and has also produced a number of classical music programmes. She is especially associated with the music of Alan Hovhaness, which she has recorded in two CDs that have received glowing reviews and are extensively broadcast worldwide. A graduate with full honours and special mention at the Conservatoire "A. Casella (L'Aquila, Italy) and the "Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, A. Cortot" (Paris, France), her full biography is accessible at:https://www.naxos.com/person/Alessandra_Pompili/227361.htm
