Conor KissaneContent Creatorread more
Conor Kissane is an art historian hailing from Co. Kerry, on Ireland’s wild western coast. From the first time he came to Rome back in 2006, he fell in love with the chaotic beauty of the Eternal City, and has been living on and off here since 2011.
Conor holds a PhD from University College London, where he specialised in the role of violence in Renaissance art. When he’s not providing content for Through Eternity’s blogs and social media, these days you’ll either find him roaming the abandoned halls of some of Rome’s most off-the-beaten-track churches in search of gruesome frescoes, or obsessively seeking the perfect carbonara in the city’s endless supply of great restaurants.
His favourite Through Eternity tour is the Underground Rome itinerary - “exploring forgotten places that tell fascinating stories about the art and life of the past is Rome at its very best.”
