Joe Friedman and Marella Caracciolo have explored Rome to discover the grea test and most startling period interiors in the city. The book shows not on ly the interiors that are well known, but celebrates the extraordinary span of Rome, the city that is a microcosm of the whole of European history. Fr om its ancient past, its Renaissance and Baroque splendour, and right up to its emergence as the capital of a unified Italy, Rome has been at the fore front of architecture. As a city it has more sites of a special value than any other in Europe, and the authors have taken great care to bring a cross -section of this richness. Colour photography by Francesco Venturi captures the beauty and diversity of some of the world's most outstanding interiors , ranging from Antiquity to Art Deco. But, as with all other books in this series, "Inside Rome" is fun; a reference book for the visitor, but also a companion for all those who know and love this greatest of cities.
