Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though Italy has changed dramatically in the last two millennia, Rome, the Eternal City, has changed little. Experience it in the captivating new compact edition of the best-selling Rome Then and Now. This book beautifully illustrates Rome's greatest works of architecture, old and new, and its most historic sites while highlighting famous tourist attractions. Then-and-now photographs take readers on an unforgettable tour of Rome as it is today, and as it was over a century ago. Discover the awe-inspiring Colosseum, with dramatic inside-and-out panoramas, and learn how this ancient building has been used over the centuries for gladiator battles, wild animal hunts, and even a Paul McCartney concert. Visit ancient sites like the Pantheon, the Forum, and Trajan's Column as well as Rome's more “modern” architectural treasures dating from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Neo-Classical periods. Compare the spectacle of hundreds of horse-drawn carriages in the Piazza St. Peter in 1870 to today's open piazza showcasing the commanding visage of St. Peter's Basilica. From the ancient walls of Castle St. Angelo to the modern edifice of Central Station Termini, the images brought together reveal the everlasting style of a city that will continue to inspire the world for millennia to come.
