AJ O'Neil Rome


"Capitolium" Capstone Project by UNH Classics, Humanities, and Italian Studies, student A.J. O'Neil, with Professor Scott Smith


AJ’s Capitolium Project reconstructs, with exacting precision, the central temple in Ostia, the port city of ancient Rome in order to create a powerful viewer experience through 3-D technology. Visitors to Ostia can see the partial ruins today, but with the power of technology, anyone anywhere on earth can see the full temple, its decorations, and its original context in the Ostia forum.  AJ completed this project as his Capstone experience for the Classics, Humanities, and Italian Studies (CHI) major.
