Rome (The Passenger)
Rome is a place of contradictions and opposites: an “incredibly deceptive city”, always different from what it appears to be. It is thought to be large but it is actually immense, the largest metropolis in Europe. While the city itself was founded almost three millennia ago, 92 per cent of its buildings have been built after 1945. In this volume, “Rome doesn’t judge you” by Nicola Lagioia; “The soul of the city” by Matteo Nucci; “39 memos for a book about Rome” by Francesco Piccolo. Plus a guide to the sounds of Rome by Letizia Muratori; the feigned unrest and real malaise of the suburbs; the influence of the Vatican; the excessive power of real estate speculators and the rule of gangs; disillusioned trappers; football fans of every age, and much more.
