Summary
One of the most celebrated art critics and cultural commentators turns his attention to the timelessly fascinating city of Rome. In this magisterial history, Robert Hughes identifies seven distinct cultural episodes: the city's Etruscan beginnings; Julius Caesar and the birth of the Imperium; primitive Christianity and the growth of the Church; the Renaissance, the Baroque and the Neo-Classic; the Rome of Fascism and Mussolini; and, finally, the Rome of the 1960s - the era of Fellini, la dolce vita and the birth of the paparazzo
