The Romàntìca series comprises more volumes, each with an introductory overview and clear, detailed, fully-illustrated guides to sites organised geographically.
The first title in the series, “Cercando tra pietre e parole” (Living Stones and Words), deals with the over one hundred archaeological sites managed by the Rome Town Council in the city centre and its suburbs: a plethora of walls and temples, tombs and aqueducts, talking statues and mithraea, including some of Rome’s most famous sights, from the Altar of Peace to the Forum. A richly-illustrated series in a handy format for experts and enthusiasts alike. A fascinating journey through Rome’s centuries of history; a uniquely stimulating guide to the Eternal City. Maps following the text help pinpoint sites, while in-depth insets illustrate key people and events.
