More than ordinary guidebooks, they introduce the visitor or armchair traveller to each citys unique present-day identity and its links with the past.Rome, the Eternal City, has provided endless inspiration for religious thinkers, poets, artists and philosophers. Jonathan Boardman uncovers Romes multifaceted experience, where each layer of development rests upon the foundation of a pre-existing tradition. He also highlights a vibrant popular culture -- from gladiatorial shows to the local Roma-Lazio soccer derby.
