Item description for Rome (Treasures Ancient Civilization) by Maria Teresa Guaitoli...

From obscure Neolithic pastoral village to capitol of the world, the history of ancient Rome is not merely one of the most incredible adventures of mankind, but constitutes the start of an uninterrupted bridge between the dawn of Italic civilization and the modern West. This meticulously researched volume reconstructs the history of Rome, from its formative years to the crisis of 5th century BC, following the conquests of Rome. Through an in-depth exploration of the historical, architectural, and artistic facets of the main periods of Roman civilization, Ancient Rome creates a compelling pictorial representation of the development of the Roman world. From the birth of Rome and the Etruscan and Italic populations to the Roman Conquest of Italy to the building of the Mediterranean empire, this volume traces the influence of the many peoples that were absorbed into the Roman empire. Their customs, ideas, traditions, and beliefs are reflected in the artistic output and architecture of ancient Rome. Throughout the book, hundreds of photographs highlight the intricate mosaics, meticulously carved statues and reliefs, and sophisticated architecture whose influence is still very strong today. Reconstructions and plans demonstrate the complexity of ancient architectural sites, providing readers with a compelling glimpse of a remarkable civilization.
Maria Teresa Guaitoli lectures on archaeological museology at the University of Bologna. She has participated in numerous archaeological excavations and conducted extensive research in the field of classical archaeology. She has published several books, most recently Lost Cities of the Ancient World (White Star, 2002).
