Still a very good reference books for every day life in Roman times. First published in the 1950's, it's not a glossy, colour picture book. Still the information is well organized. Paoli touches on every aspects of Roman life throughout the early times, the Republic and the Empire eras. Learned a lot, took copious notes and got lots and lots of ideas for my writing. Not recent but still a very well written introduction to Roman every day life.
Non mi è piaciuto per niente il modo in cui è stato scritto. Fin troppo noioso e inutilmente descrittivo.
Potrebbe starci l'alibi che un argomento di questo genere (storico-descrittivo) facilmente riesca a stancare un lettore... eppure un altro libro (La grecia nel secolo di Pericle) pur trattando qualcosa di simile, è riuscito a suscitare maggiore attenzione e interesse.
