This is Rome, first published in 1960, traces the history of Roman civilization to bring to life the Rome of the ’60s. M. Sasek navigates Rome’s busy, winding streets to visit such glorious historical landmarks as the statues of Michelangelo, Vatican City, the Pantheon, and the Fontana di Trevi, while showing the eccentricities of modern Roman life, from its colorful trains, trams, and taxis to its chic espresso bars and pasta houses. The charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek’s witty, playful narrative, make for a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents. This is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the 21st century, appearing on a “This is Rome Today” page at the back of the book.
