Originally from Italy, Paolo Maranzana earned his master’s degree in the UK and came to the University of Michigan with an already-established international point of view.

He had a specific interest in Roman cities, and he knew there were at least four faculty members at U-M who were already working closely with the kind of research he hoped to conduct.
