Rome: A Cultural, Visual, and Personal History
This book is a comprehensive, and deeply personal history of Rome, as city, as empire, and, crucially, as an origin of Western art and civilization covering the span from the city's origins more than two thousand years ago through the twentieth century. The founding of Rome is shrouded in legend, but current archaeological evidence supports the theory that Rome grew from pastoral settlements and coalesced into a city in the 8th century BC. It developed into the capital of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and finally the Roman Empire. For almost a thousand years, Rome was the most politically important, richest and largest city in the Western world. This book tells the story of the Eternal City, from its earliest days right up to the present.
