Rome: A cultural and literary history jellemzők

In this new, revised edition of his acclaimed history of the city, Jonathan Boardman uncovers Romes multifaceted experience, where each layer of development rests upon the foundation of a pre-existing tradition. In a place where political and religious ideologies have always expressed themselves through art, he also highlights a vibrant popular culture: from gladiatorial shows to the local Roma-Lazio soccer derby.
