Description
How did the "Caput mundi" come to play such a critical role in the development of Western civilization? Addis addresses this question by tracing the history of the "Eternal City" through key moments in its history: from the mythic founding in 753 BC, the murder of Caesar in 44 BC, the coronation of Charlemagne in AD 800, the painting of the Sistine chapel, the trial of Galileo, Mussolini's March on Rome in 1922, the release of Fellini's La Dolce Vita in 1960, and the Occupy riots of 2011. City of the Seven Hills, spiritual home of Catholicism, city of the artistic imagination, enduring symbol of our common European heritage -- Rome has inspired, charmed, and tempted empire-builders, dreamers, writers, and travelers across the twenty-seven centuries of its existence. Ferdinand Addis tells this rich story in a grand narrative style for a new generation of readers. --,Adapted from dust jacket.
