Living in Rome

Author: Bruno Racine
Publisher: Flammarion-Pere Castor
ISBN: IND:30000083468771
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Architecture

This is Rome as you have never seen it. Through the perceptive text of Bruno Racine, current director of the French Academy in Rome, and the stunning photographs of Alain Fleischer, this book reveals aspects of the city that most visitors miss. Stone and Color Rome's stone, brick and plaster shimmer in countless hues, according to the time of day and the season. Goethe and Stendhal celebrated the incomparable light, which is a never-ending delight-- particularly sweet at sunset, when the city seems to be ablaze. Strolling in Rome Rome is made for strolling, with its narrow winding streets, multitude of squares and fountains glittering in the sunlight. For those prepared to take it at a leisurely pace, the city is an endless source of surprises. Roman Gardens A vestige of the rural Rome of the past, entire hills have retained their cloak of greenery. Public or private, the city's parks and gardens offer another vision of the city, in the aromatic shade of orange trees and umbrella pines. Roman Interiors A passion for art has graced Roman homes for centuries. From magnificent palaces to modern apartments, with unequalled opulence or complete simplicity, the city continually affirms its love of beauty in all its forms. Roman Rendezvous The Rome that Romans love: museums, ignored by the tour operators, traditional artisans, antique dealers, hotels with panoramic views, charming cafés and restaurants. Connoisseur's Guide The best addresses and tips from Romans. Where to go for a room with a view, a good meal or a cappuccino. Exploring the riches of the museums and antique dealers. Where to find exceptional artisans and chic fashion clothing. Discovering the many sights in the environs of Rome and enjoying the big events of the year in the city itself. Rome has grown since the days when it was the capital of the Roman Empire, but this incomparable city has lost none of its unique charm. It is a place which enjoys a special privilege: time. Time, be it that of history or that of everyday life, has a particular quality in Rome. This is the reason why Rome's charm is easier to experience than it is to describe. A person in a hurry might fall in love with the city, but the sheer abundance of artistic riches can all too often be oppressive. Rome's charm will reveal itself more readily to someone who is prepared to discover it at a leisurely pace, without a stopwatch. The art of living in Rome means taking the time to yield to its subtle powers of seduction. A permanent miracle, Rome unites in one love the believer and the atheist, classical rigor and baroque exuberance, attachment to the past and a passion for life.

Designed for the tourist seeking a fresh, authentic, Roman experience, this intimate, stimulating guide explores Rome's splendid modern architecture, its bustling close-in neighborhoods, and its rivers, magnificent fountains, and aqueducts. Itineraries take the reader to Fascist and occupied Rome of World War II, the nearby Alban Hills, and the Eternal City's lesser-known green spaces. Innovative chapters feature cultural and artistic Rome, including art galleries, jazz clubs, film locations, and rooftop bars--even places that offer a sumptuous (and free) "vernissage" of wine and hors d'oeuvres. With Bill and Dianne as guides-their voices part of the experience-the curious traveler will discover a housing project built under Mussolini; ascend a little-known holy Roman road on the city's outskirts; spend an evening in the out-of-the-way, artsy neighborhood of Pigneto; enjoy a trattoria where only Italians eat; and, among the book's many informative, creative "sidebars," find in one the troubling story of Rome's Jewish community, and in another locate sites in "Angels & Demons." 16 maps, 70 photos, an index, and detailed directions and instructions (including websites) make this "new" Rome easily accessible. For the frugally-minded, at times adventurous (at times armchair) traveler. Foreword by Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni.

The Secrets of Rome

Author: Corrado Augias
Publisher: Rizzoli Publications
ISBN: 9780847842773
Release Date: 2014-04-22
Genre: Travel

From Italy's popular author Corrado Augias comes the most intriguing exploration of Rome ever to be published. In the mold of his earlier histories of Paris, New York, and London, Augias moves perceptively through twenty-seven centuries of Roman life, shedding new light on a cast of famous, and infamous, historical figures and uncovering secrets and conspiracies that have shaped the city without our ever knowing it. From Rome's origins as Romulus's stomping ground to the dark atmosphere of the Middle Ages; from Caesar's unscrupulousness to Caravaggio's lurid genius; from the notorious Lucrezia Borgia to the seductive Anna Fallarino, the marchioness at the center of one of Rome's most heinous crimes of the post-war period, Augias creates a sweeping account of the passions that have shaped this complex city: at once both a metropolis and a village, where all human sentiment-bravery and cowardice, industriousness and sloth, enterprise and laxity-find their interpreters and stage. If the history of humankind is all passion and uproar, then, as the author notes, "for centuries Rome has been the mirror of this history, reflecting with excruciating accuracy every detail, even those that might cause you to avert your gaze."
