Step 2: Review the Two PowerPoints called “Roman Civilization” and “Roman Architecture”.
Step 3: Review the Word Document Lecture Notes.
Step 4: Now in a two page essay, please describe some of the most consequential contributions left over by the Roman civilization, and how their legacy is still relevant today, particularly in the United States.
You are welcome to answer the essay question freely based on your knowledge of reading the Sprezzatura chapters indicated above, or information based on the PowerPoints and lecture notes.
No sources are required but if it helps you can use Sprezzatura, the PowerPoints and the lecture notes as your sources but you don`t need into include a Work`s Cited page. If you use quotes from Sprezzatura as your source just include the page numbers in parenthesis.

For your consideration, I inserted photos of the pages from the readings as a Word Document attachment for each chapter and, I also included the PowerPoints on “Roman Civilization” and “Roman Architecture” as an attachment too and finally I included lecture notes in a word document attachment.
The 2 page essay has to be in Times New Roman Font Size 12 with 1 inch margins all around. Thank you for your time.
